A Quantum Bound State Description of Black Holes [CL]


Black holes are embedded as bound states in a relativistic quantum theory of weakly coupled constituent fields. The constituents are immersed in a non perturbative vacuum structure representing strong collective effects via in medium modifications. The latter are parametrized in terms of condensates. Observables such as the constituent distribution, the constituent number and energy density are constructed, and calculated at the parton level. Remarkably, even at this level, these observables receive only non perturbative contributions. Furthermore, observables associated with the interior of black holes show simple scalings with the total constituent number. Finally, an explicit framework for calculating gauge corrections is presented.
