article description
We display a number of advantages of objective collapse theories for the resolution of long-standing problems in cosmology and quantum gravity. In particular, we examine applications of objective reduction models to three important issues: the origin of the seeds of cosmic structure, the problem of time in quantum gravity and the information loss paradox; we show how reduction models contain the necessary tools to provide solutions for these issues. We wrap up with an adventurous proposal, which relates the spontaneous collapse events of objective collapse models to microscopic virtual black holes. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

Black hole information paradox

The black hole information paradoxThe short form "ínformation paradox" is also used for the Arrow information paradox. is a puzzle resulting from the combination of quantum mechanics and general relativity. Calculations suggest that physical information could permanently disap...
