Professor Gerard 't Hooft, Universiteit Utrecht,
Heinrich Hertz Lecture 2003
Arguments from quantum field theory, thermodynamics and superstring physics indicate that black holes have got a well defined quantum structure. The quantum mechanical states are characterized by observables distributed uniformly over the horizon of the black holes. Deep and fundamental problems occur when we try to relate this picture to locality and relativistic invariance of the laws of nature:
