Black hole information, unitarity, and nonlocality

Preprint English OPEN
Giddings, Steven B.;
(2006)

The black hole information paradox apparently indicates the need for a fundamentally new ingredient in physics. The leading contender is nonlocality. Possible mechanisms for the nonlocality needed to restore unitarity to black hole evolution are investigated. Suggestion... View more
