The Fuzzball proposal for black holes: An Elementary review
We give an elementary review of black holes in string theory. We discuss BPS holes, the microscopic computation of entropy and the 'fuzzball' picture of the black hole interior suggested byExpand
Gravitational-wave signatures of exotic compact objects and of quantum corrections at the horizon scale
Gravitational waves from binary coalescences provide one of the cleanest signatures of the nature of compact objects. It has been recently argued that the postmerger ringdown waveform of exoticExpand
Reproducing GW150914: the first observation of gravitational waves from a binary black hole merger
This is the first direct detection of gravitational waves and the first observation of a binary black hole merger, and these observations demonstrate the existence of binary stellar-mass black hole systems. Expand
Black holes: complementarity or firewalls?
A bstractWe argue that the following three statements cannot all be true: (i) Hawking radiation is in a pure state, (ii) the information carried by the radiation is emitted from the region near theExpand
What is high energy
Abstract The energy region above 1 GeV is subjected to search for characteristic points. These points exist, their significance is discussed. A strange and unlikely correlation between them and theExpand
