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 else be so spread out, that it would never show up in an analysis perturbative in ${\mathit{M}}_{\mathrm{Planck}}$/M, or in 1/N for two-dimensional dilatonic black holes with a large number N of minimally coupled scalar fields.

It is shown that the black-hole information paradox becomes more severe, even for cosmologically sized black holes, and either unitarity or Hawking's semiclassical predictions must break down.

It is shown that, contrary to some previous suggestions, black holes evaporate completely a finite time after formation, and a boundary condition is required to evolve the system beyond the naked singularity at the evaporation end point.
