Have Stephen Hawking and other physicists solved the black hole information paradox?
I don't fully understand the paper, does this mean we can extract information from black holes?
Because the last BIG NEWS was they discovered gravity waves and then a few months later it turned out they were wrong.
Im not believing anything anymore until its been proved multiple times over.
Not yet. They tried to express something, which was discovered by string theory, in terms of real physics in an attempt to solve the information paradox. They found something worthwhile and did a proof of concept on how this might help solving the problem. But it is not yet fully solved.
Technically those would just be the black hole wobbling in combination with these 'soft hairs'... they're very very slow and their causal boundaries, the 'gravity waves', would be that of what the nature of action inside the edge of a black hole would deign feasible.... basically a second dimensional 'total life'
The paper can be most truly noted by how it takes the model of the funnel, puts a horizontally plane through the middle of it, puts a funnel off the edges of the top and bottom of that, then turns it on its side and calls it circumference with the accumulation being of a single vertexes and angles and operating >with< the same matrix as multiple with multiple vertexes and angles all facing and being the same edge in single and multiple places and in that does it create the a production of these 'soft hairs' at the center of the black hole that accumulate into... well... gravity, but with the conditions that the space of the black hole is the fastest thing existing
I also forgot to mention that it accounts for gravitational lensing do to... well the high volumn of 'soft hairs' that 'arn't physical'; hence the whole 'we're in a hologram thing', but that's just fancy speak for 'we're not aware of all forms of light or mass'
Actually information seems to be really lost in black holes doe to their slow evaporation ( read about Hawking Radiation seriously ). The radiation doesn't carry much information of the black hole, and since it's constantly losing mass because of it ( only relatively because it sucks in more) it's constantly losing information that can never be retrieved. Sorry for bad English.
>soft electric hair
How / does this relate to the 'fuzzball' concept published last year?
>Actually information seems to be really lost in black holes
no shit. This is what Hawking et al. address in the paper in order to resolve this paradox and proove that information is actually never lost.
according to no-hair theorem - no, as the only information about the black hole is it's mass, charge and angular momentum.
If any information is conserved anywhere, it has to be outside of the event horizon - or at it's very edge, as everything else gets crushed inside the singularity which, as the name suggests, is just a massive point.
