Mathematical Physics Seminar

The entropy of Hawking Radiation

Juan Maldacena - Institute for Advanced Study

Location:  zoom
Date & time: Wednesday, 07 July 2021 at 10:45AM - 11:45PM

Abstract: We describe a new entropy formula for the von Neumann entropy of a black hole. We show how this new formula also applies to the computation of the entropy of Hawking radiation, leading to a result consistent with quantum mechanics.
