Workshop on Quantum Information and Black Holes
December 5-6, 2017
Program Organizers: Christopher Herzog, YITP, Stony Brook University; Juan Maldacena, IAS; Alex Maloney, McGill University
We will discuss quantum aspects of black holes which have some common aspects with the SYK model of interacting Majorana fermions. Some questions are:
- What are the lessons for the black hole interior that we can abstract from these models?
- What aspects can we explicitly understand about the long time dynamics and the effects that restore unitarity?
- Can we understand them even qualitatively from the gravity side, or in the large N effective action describing the SYK models ?
