The Hawking Paradox Now

ID : 826   
« back to classes page
This Course introduces a rare subject of Stephen Hawking to the general public, the Hawking Paradox.  It was long his primary issue to resolve, and he left papers at his passing, that relates to another called the Black Hole Information Paradox.  The Hawking one centers on Black Hole radiation and particles.  Physicists have applied new techniques from 2014 intended to resolve the second paradox and aid the Hawking Paradox.  So, we have two fascinating puzzles to work.  The person (people) who resolve the paradox is (are) expected to gain a Nobel Prize(s.)
