Simple models for unitary black hole evolution are given in an effective Hilbert-space description, parameterizing a possible minimal relaxation of locality, with respect to semiclassical black hole geometry. 

Unitary toy qubit transport model for black hole evaporation

In a recent paper Osuga and Page have presented an explicitly unitary toy qubit transport model for transferring information from a black hole to the outgoing radiation. Following their idea we

A unitary qubit transport toy model for black hole evaporation

In a recent paper Osuga and Page presented an explicitly unitary qubit transport toy model for black hole evaporation. Following their idea we propose a unitary toy model which involves Hawking

Fermionic model of unitary transport of qubits from a black hole

Inspired by a recent model of Osuga and Page, we propose an explicitly unitary fermionic toy model for transferring information from a black hole to the outgoing radiation. The model treats the

Astronomical tests for quantum black hole structure

Quantum modifications to black holes on scales comparable to the horizon size, or even more radical physics, are apparently needed to reconcile the existence of black holes with the principles of

Gauge-gravity duality and the black hole interior.

The Einstein-R Rosen=Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen conjecture of Maldacena and Susskind is addressed, arguing that the correlations in generic highly entangled states cannot be geometrized as a smooth wormhole.

Can a QED Photon Propagate Out of the Black‐Hole Horizon?

We show at one‐loop approximation that the QED photon acquires a negative gauge‐invariant mass‐squared in the near‐horizon region of an evaporating Schwarzschild black hole. This result may imply

Black holes, quantum information, and the foundations of physics

Quantum mechanics teaches that black holes evaporate by radiating particles—a lesson indicating that at least one pillar of modern physics must fall.

Jerusalem Lectures on Black Holes and Quantum Information

In these lectures I give an introduction to the quantum physics of black holes, including recent developments based on quantum information theory such as the rewall paradox and its various cousins. I

Trouble in Paradox

: Recent developments in holography have suggested a potential resolution to the black hole information paradox within the context of gravitational effective field theory. We emphasize the non-local



The black hole final state

We propose that in quantum gravity one needs to impose a final state boundary condition at black hole singularities. This resolves the apparent contradiction between string theory and semiclassical

Quantum Mechanics of Black Holes

These lectures give a pedagogical review of dilaton gravity, Hawking radiation, the black hole information problem, and black hole pair creation. (Lectures presented at the 1994 Trieste Summer School

The information paradox and the locality bound

Hawking's argument for information loss in black hole evaporation rests on the assumption of independent Hilbert spaces for the interior and exterior of a black hole. We argue that such independence

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

Black holes as Rubik’s cubes

We propose a unitary toy model of black hole evaporation, in which the entanglement between the interior and exterior degrees of freedom vanishes at late times. Our model possesses the

Trouble For Remnants

An argument is presented for the inconsistency of black hole remnants which store the information which falls into black holes. Unlike previous arguments it is not concerned with a possible

The Black hole information paradox

After a brief reminscence about work with K. Sato 25 years ago on the monopole problem and inflation, a discussion is given of the black hole information paradox. It is argued that, quite generally,

Quantization in black hole backgrounds

Quantum field theory in a semiclassical background can be derived as an approximation to quantum gravity from a weak-coupling expansion in the inverse Planck mass. Such an expansion is studied for

Black hole complementarity versus locality.

Evidence is presented that degrees of freedom inside a black hole should not be viewed as independent from those outside the event horizon, and commutators of spacelike separated operators corresponding to ordinary low-energy observers in Minkowski space are strongly suppressed in string theory.

Quantum emission from two-dimensional black holes.

It is argued that to leading order in perturbation theory the effect of the back reaction is to modify the Bogoliubov transformation, but not in a way that restores information lost to the black hole.
