Black Holes: Everything You Think You Know Is Wrong

Quantum mechanics has contradicted the most basic tenet of black holes: that nothing can escape.

The confusing world of black holes and quantum mechanics

The dramatic story of black holes is one filled with mysteries, intrigue and paradoxes. From the obscure birth at the beginning of the twentieth century to their rise in importance at the end of the past century, black holes have constantly made us question the very foundations of what we thought we understood about physics.…

Nov 30, 2009 · Does it make sense to try to combine quantum mechanics with relativity when trying to understand black holes when the mass of the black hole is so huge? In

Quantum Mechanics of Black Holes | Science

The popular conception of black holes reflects the behavior of the massive black holes found by astronomers and described by classical general relativity. These objects swallow up whatever comes near and emit nothing. Physicists who have tried to understand the behavior of black holes from a quantum mechanical point of view, however, have …

Black holes and quantum mechanics – ScienceDirect

After a brief review of quantum black hole physics, it is shown how the dynamical properties of a quantum black hole may be deduced to a large extent from Standard Model Physics, extended to scales near the Planck length, and combined with results from perturbative quantum gravity.

Black hole thermodynamics – Wikipedia

In physics, black hole thermodynamics is the area of study that seeks to reconcile the laws of thermodynamics with the existence of black-hole event horizons.As the study of the statistical mechanics of black-body radiation led to the advent of the theory of quantum mechanics, the effort to understand the statistical mechanics of black holes …
