Double holography and Page curves in Type IIB

Abstract: In recent progress on the black hole information paradox, Page curves consistent with unitarity have been obtained in 2d models and in bottom-up braneworld models using the notion of double holography. In this talk we discuss top-down models realizing 4d black holes coupled to a bath in Type IIB string theory and obtain Page curves. We make the ideas behind double holography precise in these models and address causality puzzles which have arisen in the bottom-up models, leading to a refinement of their interpretation.
