Seminar April 30: J. Maldacena

On April 30 we will have a seminar by

Juan Maldacena (IAS Princeton)

Title: The entropy of Hawking radiation and the information paradox

We will review recent progress on the black hole information paradox.
We start by reviewing some aspects of black hole thermodynamics.
Then we will introduce the formula for fine grained entropy of black holes. We apply it various examples. We then discuss how this formula computes the entropy of evaporating black holes as well as the entropy of Hawking radiation.
