Black Holes: Thermodynamics, Information, and Firewalls - Robert B. Mann
Call Number: QB 843 .B55 M36 2015
ISBN: 9783319144955
Publication Date: 2015-03-25
This book reflects the resurgence of interest in the quantum properties of black holes, culminating most recently in controversial discussions about firewalls. On the thermodynamic side, it describes how new developments allowed the inclusion of pressure/volume terms in the first law, leading to a new understanding of black holes as chemical systems, experiencing novel phenomena such as triple points and reentrant phase transitions. On the quantum-information side, the reader learns how basic arguments undergirding quantum complementarity have been shown to be flawed; and how this suggests that a black hole may surround itself with a firewall: a violent and chaotic region of highly excited states. In this thorough and pedagogical treatment, Robert Mann traces these new developments from their roots to our present-day understanding, highlighting their relationships and the challenges they present for quantum gravity.

 

Guide Scope

This guide is meant for those who are pursuing research-level work in astrophysics or astronomy at UNH, and for those who are strongly interested in these areas.  It includes information to direct you to resources for doing literature searches,finding library materials (and staff who can help!), getting help with writing, and professional directions in these fields.

Off Campus Access Instructions

Without VPN, you may still access library resources from off-campus.  To do this, you must find the resource in the UNH Library Catalog, UNH Library Database List and/or UNH Fulltext Journal List.  When you go to the record for the resource and click on the UNH Library link for it, you will be prompted to put in your IT ID.  You should then be connected to that resource.

The UNH Connect VPN also provides excellent access; it makes any link to resources provided by the UNH Library accessible through your computer.
