The information paradox first surfaced in the early 1970s when Stephen
Hawking of Cambridge University suggested that black holes are not totally
black. Hawking showed that particle-antiparticle pairs generated at the event
horizon—the outer periphery of a black hole—would be separated. One particle
would fall into the black hole while the other would escape, making the black
hole a radiating body. Characteristics of the emission and absorption of usual
substance by a black hole can be described by information models. Estimation of
the volume of information in black holes is necessary for generation of
restrictions for their formation, development and interconversion. Information
is an integral part of the Universe. By its physical essence information is heterogeneity of matter and
energy. Therefore information is inseparably connected with matter and
energy. An information approach along with a physical one allows to obtain new,
sometimes more general data in relation to data obtained on the ground of physical
rules only. The author’s works, testify about the practicality of information
laws usage simultaneously with physical rules for cognition of the Universe.
The results presented in this paper show the effectiveness of informational
approach for studying the black holes. The article discusses the following
questions: The volume of information in the black hole; Information model of a
black hole; Characteristics of the emission and absorption of usual substance
by a black hole describes the information model of a black hole; The
information paradox; A simple explanation of the information paradox by the information
model of a black hole.
