This book presents an in-depth critical analysis of Bekenstein-Hawking Black Hole Thermodynamics. It also reviews the work of the Belinski group showing the non-existence of the Unruh and Hawking effects. These analyses lead to the collapse of Hawking's theory of black holes as thermal objects, leading to the breakdown of both the Area law and the Holographic principle. Quantum black holes are instead identified as pure state resonances (Gamow states) at the Planck scale.

Eternally Collapsing Objects (ECOs) and Quantum Black Holes

Author: Y. Leblanc (eFieldTheory.COM)


The Strong Principle of Equivalence (SPOE) requires Special Relativity (SR) to be locally valid for all freely falling timelike observers. Massive particle worldlines should therefore remain timelike everywhere (bundle completeness), which effectively kills all finite mass (and rotating) astrophysical black holes (BHs) from General Relativity (GR), in line with Einstein's own views. Null worldlines would otherwise form on event horizons or trapped surfaces. Gravitational collapse has been shown to create instead radiating Eternally Collapsing Objects (ECOs) or Magnetospheric Eternally Collapsing Objects (MECOs) in quasi-static equilibrium at the Eddington limit, in good agreement with astrophysical observations. Approaching the Planck scale however, Quantum Gravity (QG) effects start to kick in and the classical ECOs become semiclassical Ultra Compact ECOs (UC-ECOs). We therefore re-analyze the Leblanc-Harms theory (LHT) in the light of the replacement of BHs by ECOs. Properly interpreting the semiclassical WKB formula of euclidean GR in the classical quasi-static ECO background as the vacuum tunneling amplitude (vacuum decay) of the false ECO vacuum, one finds again qualitative agreement with the soft behavior of the Gross-Mende scattering amplitude of String Theory (ST) in the trans-Planckian region, signalling the extended (non-local/stringy/brany) nature of QG beyond the Planck scale.
