Recent progress on the black hole information paradox has succeeded in reconstructing Page curves compatible with unitary evolution. The formula of generalized entropy derived from the gravitational path integration, nevertheless, does not provide concrete insight on how the information comes out from the black hole given that the state of the radiation seems to follow what was given by Hawking. In this paper, we provide a quantum informational interpretation of entanglement islands and draw… Expand

It is shown that the black-hole information paradox becomes more severe, even for cosmologically sized black holes, and either unitarity or Hawking's semiclassical predictions must break down. Expand
