Many of previous approaches for the firewall puzzle rely on a hypothesis that interior partner modes are embedded on the early radiation of a maximally entangled black hole. Quantum information theory, however, casts doubt on this folklore and suggests a different tale; the outgoing Hawking mode will be decoupled from the early radiation once an infalling observer, with finite positive energy,...

One of the cornerstones of Quantum Mechanics (QM), Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle (HUP), establishes that it is not possible to simultaneously measure with arbitrary precision both the position and the momentum of a quantum system. This principle, however, does not prevent one from measuring with infinite precision the system’s position. However, theories of Quantum Gravity, aiming to...

Scalar-tensor gravity can be described as general relativity plus an effective imperfect fluid corresponding to the scalar field degree of freedom of this class of theories. A symmetry of electrovacuum Brans-Dicke gravity translates into a symmetry of the corresponding effective fluid. We present the formalism and an application to an anomaly in the limit of Brans-Dicke theory to Einstein...

We study Quantum Gravity effects on the density of states in statistical mechanics and its implications for the critical temperature of a Bose Einstein Condensate and fraction of bosons in its ground state. We also study the effects of compact extra dimensions on the critical temperature and the fraction. We consider both neutral and charged bosons in the study and show that the effects may...

Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG) is one proposed approach to quantize General Relativity. In previous literature LQG effects have been applied to Bianchi II spaces and here we numerically solve the resulting equations of motion using the fixed step 6th order Butcher-1 Runge-Kutta method. We also test, for a wide range of initial conditions, analytic transition rules for the Kasner exponents and...

Guided by the application of loop quantum gravity (LQG) to cosmological space-times and techniques developed therein, I will present an effective framework for vacuum spherically symmetric space-times. Stationary solutions of the effective theory give an LQG corrected metric with a number of interesting properties including curvature scalars that are bounded by the Planck scale and a minimal...

Using Loop Quantum Gravity corrections one can study quantum gravity effects for a dust-gravity system, resulting in a Loop Quantum version of Oppenheimer-Snyder collapse. In this talk I will explain how this model is built up and the consequences of adding holonomy corrections to the classical theory. In particular, we see that, in the black hole formation, there is a bounce when the energy...
