If distant observers never see a black hole form in finite time how can the information paradox be a problem?
So, at least as reported in the media, the physics community is still struggling with the problem of resolving the impossibility of retrieving information from beyond the event horizon of a black hole ...
How many how many planck areas would capture of a resting electron add to the surface of a black hole?
In other words, what is the 'information content' of an electron (or of other supposedly elementary particles for that matter) as revealed by their effects on black hole horizon area?
In Hawking's paper, "Breakdown of predictability in gravitational collapse", the crux of Hawking's argument is as follows: ...,one can extend the principle to treatments in which the gravitational ...
This question is motivated by the issue of information retrieval from black holes, but it is essentially a question about quantum information. It is widely believed (in certain circles) that the ...
I do have a question about an assumption made in the very interesting Hayden-Preskill paper of black holes as informational mirrors. Alice throws her top secret quantum diary which is $k$ qubits long ...
