Description
The black hole firewall problem is a conflict between three important physical principles: causality, unitarity, and the equivalence principle. I will describe how the conflict arises in the description of Hawking radiation from a black hole, and explain why resolving the problem is crucially important for our understanding of quantum gravity. I will briefly describe possible resolutions of the conflict. Solving the firewall problem is likely to teach us something important about quantum gravity.
