Workshop on Quantum Information and Black Holes
December 5-6, 2017

Speakers & Participant List Talk Videos 2020 Qubit Workshop

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 ?
