Talks by Juan Maldacena
We will review the gravitational formula for fine grained entropy. We will discuss how it applies to an evaporating black hole and how we can compute the entropy of Hawking radiation.
The near horizon region of any black hole looks like flat space and displays an approximate Poincare symmetry. We study the way these symmetries are realized for near extremal black holes.
After a short review of the gauge gravity duality, we will discuss black holes. We will explain what the duality tells us about black holes as viewed from the outside. We will review some of the puzzles that arise when we try to describe the black hole interior. We will describe wormholes and their interpretation in the dual field theory as entangled states.
