Black hole evaporation and unitarity: a semi-classical resolution?
Speaker(s): James Bardeen
Abstract:
I explore the possibility that semi-classical back-reaction, due to the partners of the Hawking radiation quanta accumulating over the time for the black hole to lose about one half of its mass (the Page time), might cause the trapped surfaces to disappear, permitting unitary evolution without any cloning of quantum information.
