BLH - Black holes: bridges between number theory and holographic quantum information

Hawking’s black hole information paradox is a subject of long-standing debate that has inspired radical ideas about the interplay between gravity and quantum physics at a fundamental level.  I will review the formulation of the paradox in the context of a semiclassical effective field theory of gravity and briefly appraise some proposed resolutions.  The remainder of the lecture will focus on a holographic view of black holes provided by a gravity theory with a gauge theory dual.  The paradox must then be resolved in favour of unitary evolution and the challenge is to implement unitarity on the gravity side of the duality.
