Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We show that the apparent horizon and the region near r = 0 of an evaporating charged, rotating black hole are timelike. It then follows that black holes in nature, which invariably have some rotation, have a channel, via which classical or quantum information can escape to the outside, while the black hole shrinks in size. We discuss implications for the information loss problem.
