Abstract [en]

The information paradox is one of the greatest unsolved mysteries on modern physics that have received major attention since it was first surfaced by Stephen Hawking in the 1970s. The consensus of the information paradox is far from reached and it seems like at least one established law of nature need to go in order to resolve it.

The information paradox is in the heart of the conflict between quantum mechanics and general relativity and could be a clue to their unification. In this paper we review problems that comes with the paradox as well as present modern attempts to resolve it. We will look closer on black hole complementarity that tells us that tells us that no observer ever observes a violation of a physical law as well as counter arguments to it, including the firewall paradox. Recently, an entropy inequality was derived that is violated in the framework of Hawking radiation. We will demonstrate that small corrections to the Hawking radiation will not resolve this violation as many believes but make the violation more severe. Finally, we will outline more unconventional attempts to approach the information paradox.
