Abstract [en]

Using analytical results from both general relativity and quantum mechanics weshow that physical black holes probably do not exist. This would actually be a boon totheoretical physics, for example as:i) General relativity would then be globally valid in the (classical) physical universe, due to itsnon-singular nature.ii) The black hole information paradox would vanish.iii) No event horizon would mean no Hawking radiation, resolving the causal paradox that foran outside observer it takes an infinite time for the black hole to form whereas it evaporates infinite time.Astrophysical applications that seem to require black holes (quasars/AGNs, some binarysystems, stellar motions near the center of our galaxy, etc) can still be fulfilled by compactbut non-singular masses, M..
