General relativity contains solutions in which two distant black holes are connected through the interior via a wormhole, or Einstein‐Rosen bridge. These solutions can be interpreted as maximally entangled states of two black holes that form a complex EPR pair. We suggest that similar bridges might be present for more general entangled states. In the case of entangled black holes one can formulate versions of the AMPS(S) paradoxes and resolve them. This suggests possible resolutions of the… 
Entanglement between two evaporating black holes
: We study a thermo-field double type entangle state on two disjoint gravitating universes, say A and B, with an eternal black hole on each. As was shown previously, its entanglement entropy of the
What is the dual of two entangled CFTs
It has been conjectured that the dual of the eternal black hole in AdS is two entangled but disconnected CFTs. We show that the entanglement created by the process of Hawking radiation creates
Black holes, entanglement and random matrices
We provide evidence that strong quantum entanglement between Hilbert spaces does not generically create semiclassical wormholes between the corresponding geometric regions in the context of the
Black Holes in String Theory
Black holes are the hydrogen atoms of quantum gravity. For instance solving the information loss paradox will likely require a deep understanding of how the long-sought quantum gravity theory works.
New Concepts for Old Black Holes
It has been argued that the AMPS paradox implies catastrophic breakdown of the equivalence principle in the neighborhood of a black hole horizon, or even the non-existence of any spacetime at all
Black Holes: Thermodynamics, Information, and Firewalls
Black holes have presented us with some of the most baffling paradoxes in physics. From their original conception as dark stars, they have come to be understood as physical systems with their own
Holographic complexity of cold hyperbolic black holes
A bstractAdS black holes with hyperbolic horizons provide strong-coupling descriptions of thermal CFT states on hyperboloids. The low-temperature limit of these systems is peculiar. In this note we
Disrupting Entanglement of Black Holes
We study entanglement in thermofield double states of strongly coupled conformal field theories by analyzing two-sided Reissner-Nordstrom solutions in anti–de Sitter space. The central object of
The Black Hole Paradoxes and Possible Solutions
The cause of the black hole information and firewall paradoxes is investigated and some possible solutions are provided, which may provide a possible way of unifying quantum mechanics and general relativity.
Disrupting Entanglement of Black Holes
We study entanglement in thermofield double states of strongly coupled CFTs by analyzing two-sided Reissner-Nordström solutions in AdS. The central object of study is the mutual information between a


Black hole entanglement and quantum error correction
A bstractIt was recently argued in [1] that black hole complementarity strains the basic rules of quantum information theory, such as monogamy of entanglement. Motivated by this argument, we develop
Eternal Black Holes and Superselection in AdS/CFT
It has been argued i) that Lorentz-signature solutions with wormholes connecting n asymptotically AdS regions describe bulk quantum states dual to n entangled but non-interacting CFTs and ii) that
Time evolution of entanglement entropy from black hole interiors
A bstractWe compute the time-dependent entanglement entropy of a CFT which starts in relatively simple initial states. The initial states are the thermofield double for thermal states, dual to

If black hole formation evaporation can be described by an S matrix, information would be expected to come out in black hole radiation. An estimate shows that it may come out initially so slowly, or
Better late than never: information retrieval from black holes.
We show that, in order to preserve the equivalence principle until late times in unitarily evaporating black holes, the thermodynamic entropy of a black hole must be primarily entropy of entanglement
Eternal black holes in anti-de Sitter
We propose a dual non-perturbative description for maximally extended Schwarzschild Anti-de-Sitter spacetimes. The description involves two copies of the conformal field theory associated to the AdS

Black holes, AdS, and CFTs

The Information paradox: A Pedagogical introduction
The black hole information paradox is a very poorly understood problem. It is often believed that Hawking's argument is not precisely formulated, and a more careful accounting of naturally occurring
