Xavier Calmet


In this talk I present our solution to the information paradox published in Phys.Rev.Lett. 128 (2022) 11, 111301 and Phys.Lett.B 827 (2022) 136995 (see EPL 139 (2022) 4, 49001 for a review). Long wavelength quantum gravitational effects allow the interior state of the black hole to influence Hawking radiation, leading to unitary evaporation. I explain why the Mathur theorem is evaded due to the complex nature of the Hawking radiation superposition state.

The presenter will be joining via Zoom for this talk.
