Holographic Duality Yields Breakthrough in Black Hole Physics
By Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) November 5, 2019
The physics of black holes remains an elusive chapter of modern physics.
It is the sharpest point of tension between quantum mechanics and the theory of general relativity.
According to quantum mechanics, black holes should behave like other ordinary quantum systems.
Yet, there are many ways in which this is problematic from the point of view
of Einstein’s theory of general relativity.
Therefore, the question of understanding black holes quantum mechanically remains
a constant source of physical paradoxes. The careful resolution of such paradoxes
should provide us a clue as to how quantum gravity works.
That is why the physics of black holes is the subject of active research in theoretical physics.
