Abstract

We will briefly review the issue of "information loss" during the Hawking evaporation of a black hole, and argue that the quantum dynamical reduction theories, which have been developed to address the measurement problem in quantum mechanics, possess the elements to diffuse the ``paradox” at the qualitative and at the quantitative level, leading to what seems to be an overall coherent picture.
