This book presents an in-depth critical analysis of Bekenstein-Hawking Black Hole Thermodynamics. It also reviews the work of the Belinski group showing the non-existence of the Unruh and Hawking effects. These analyses lead to the collapse of Hawking's theory of black holes as thermal objects, leading to the breakdown of both the Area law and the Holographic principle. Quantum black holes are instead identified as pure state resonances (Gamow states) at the Planck scale.

The Quantum Black Hole Problem
29 December 2002

Back to previous page !

Author: Y. Leblanc (eFieldTheory.COM)


This is an essay discussing the true nature of quantum black holes as well as the various semiclassical approaches used in their analyses. It is pointed out that the usual thermal interpretation of the WKB method as well as the use of the singular Rindler-type wavefunctions in Mean-Field theory lead to mathematical and physical inconsistencies and point directly toward the non existence of the black hole thermal evaporation process. Proper interpretation of the WKB method as the tunneling probability of quantum particles escaping the hole leads to the identification of quantum black holes as p-brane massive quantum excitations modes. It is also critical of recently defined concepts such as entanglement entropy and the holographic principle.
