We investigate an entangled system, which is analogous to a composite system of a black hole and Hawking radiation. If Hawking radiation is well approximated by an outgoing particle generated from pair creation around the black hole, such a pair creation increases the total number of states. There should be a unitary mechanism to reduce the number of states inside the horizon for black hole evaporation. Because the infalling antiparticle has negative energy, as long as the infalling…

Demonstration of the Hayden-Preskill Protocol via Mutual Information

It is shown that enough mixing is an essential condition to make the Hayden-Preskill protocol functionally work, and the original conjecture of Hayden and Preskill is explicitly demonstrated.

Before the Page Time: Maximum Entanglements or the Return of the Monster?

This paper provides several interpretations of the phenomenon of evaporating black holes and concludes that the statistical entropy is greater than the areal entropy; a monster is formed.

Causal structures and dynamics of black-hole-like solutions in string theory

We investigate spherically symmetric solutions in string theory. Such solutions depend on three parameters, one of which corresponds to the asymptotic mass while the other two are the dilaton and

Nonextensive black hole entropy and quantum gravity effects at the last stages of evaporation

It is shown that when introducing GUP effects, both R\'enyi entropy and temperature associated with black holes have finite values at the end of the evaporation process.

Modified Schwarzschild metric from a unitary accelerating mirror analog

We present a modified Schwarzschild solution for a model of evaporation of a black hole with information preservation. By drawing a direct analogy to the quantum pure accelerating mirror (dynamical

Finite energy but infinite entropy production from moving mirrors

Accelerating mirrors provide a simple conceptual laboratory for studying particle production and the relation between trajectory and particle, energy, and entropy fluxes. We focus on the relation

Finite thermal particle creation of Casimir light

A new solution for an analytic spectrum of particle creation by an accelerating mirror (dynamical Casimir effect) is given. It is the first model to simultaneously radiate thermally and emit a fini

Ellis wormholes in anti-de Sitter space

We construct traversable wormholes with anti-de Sitter asymptotics supported by a phantom field. These wormholes are massless and symmetric with respect to reflection of the radial coordinate $$\eta



Constructing a counterexample to the black hole complementarity

We propose a regular black hole whose inside generates a de Sitter space and then is finally frustrated into a singularity. It is a modified model which was suggested originally by Frolov, Markov,

Is the firewall consistent?: Gedanken experiments on black hole complementarity and firewall proposal

In this paper, we discuss the black hole complementarity and the firewall proposal at length. Black hole complementarity is inevitable if we assume the following five things: unitarity, entropy-area

Entropy evolution of moving mirrors and the information loss problem

We investigate the entanglement entropy and the information flow of two-dimensional moving mirrors. Here we point out that various mirror trajectories can help to mimic different candidate

Thin-shell bubbles and information loss problem in anti de Sitter background

A bstractWe study the motion of thin-shell bubbles and their tunneling in anti de Sitter (AdS) background. We are interested in the case when the outside of a shell is a Schwarzschild-AdS space

Black Holes and Entropy

There are a number of similarities between black-hole physics and thermodynamics. Most striking is the similarity in the behaviors of black-hole area and of entropy: Both quantities tend to increase

Energy-momentum tensor near an evaporating black hole

We calculate the vacuum expectation value, T/sub nu../, of the energy--momentum tensor of a massless scalar field in a general two-dimensional spacetime and evaluate it in a two-dimensional

It is argued (via consideration of other, non-Markovian models) that conservation of energy and momentum for all states is not fundamentally incompatible with causality in dynamical models in which pure states evolve to mixed states.

The stretched horizon and black hole complementarity.

Three postulates asserting the validity of conventional quantum theory, semiclassical general relativity, and the statistical basis for thermodynamics are introduced as a foundation for the study of

Entropy/Information flux in Hawking radiation

The key technical aspect of the calculation is a variant of the “average subsystem” approach developed by Page, which extends beyond bipartite pure systems, to a tripartite pure system that considers the influence of the environment.
