CPT Student Seminar: Page curve for black hole radiation using “Islands”

Presented by Arpit Das, Durham
5 October 2020 12:00 in Zoom

In this discussion, we shall first review various kinds of entropies and a pictorial representation of path integrals. Then we shall review the classical information paradox (in terms of an entropy inequality). We shall then see how the “Island formula” gives the page curve for the entropy of black hole radiation. Finally, we shall present a sketchy proof (using replica wormholes) of the Island Formula.
