A simple model of black hole evaporation

Speaker(s) / Presenter(s):
Chris Akers (MIT)

I will present a model of unitary black hole evaporation that eschews the use of quantum extremal surfaces in favor of regular Ryu-Takayanagi. This simplifies the arguments of recent derivations of the Page curve using the island formula and clarifies the relationship to quantum error-correction.
