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.

A Review of Quantum Black Hole Theories
19 April 2008

Back to previous page !

Author: Y. Leblanc (eFieldTheory.COM)


We present a brief review of the current state of quantum black hole research. The four main approaches, (a) Mean-Field Theory, (b) Black Hole Thermodynamics, (c) Black Hole Statistical Mechanics and (d) the Microscopic Theory of Black Hole Degeneracy of States, are reviewed and commented upon. The inconsistencies of the first two approaches and the similarities shared by the last two are emphasized.
