The Black Hole Interior and the Information Paradox in Holography

Suvrat Raju

ICTS-TIFR, Bengaluru

The principle of holography provides us with well defined models of quantum gravity. These models of gravity contain black holes, but we do not yet have a complete holographic description of the interior of these black holes. In fact the question of how to describe the interior in holography can be thought of as a version of the famous black-hole information paradox. I will describe some recent developments on this front, and also describe how they provide us with hints of surprising new physical effects in quantum gravity.
