“Do Black Holes Destroy Information?”
Oleg Lunin, Ph. D., Assistant Professor of Physics, University at Albany
How did the Universe begin? Do black holes destroy information? Can general relativity be unified with quantum mechanics? String theory, being the most promising approach to quantum gravity, attempts to answer these questions. After reviewing the properties of black holes and the information paradox associated with them, this talk will discuss the progress towards the resolution of the paradox made over the last decade.
