Description

A powerful idea in theoretical physics is the conjecture that (from a distance) black holes behave like ordinary quantum systems. Thought of in this way, black holes display many deep quantum phenomena in simple but often surprising ways. We will discuss recent work (involving wormholes) that gives new examples of this and also uncovers new puzzles.
