Homework Help: Strominger and Vafa p-brane model of black holes

  1. Oct 3, 2009 #1
    As I was reading Stephen Hawking's "The Universe in a Nutshell," I came across a discussion of Strominger and Vafa's p-brane model of black holes. Hawking describes that for certain classes of black holes, the p-brane model predicts that information that falls into the black holes will be stored in the wave function on the waves of the p-branes.

    Does anyone know what Hawking means by "information?"

    Throughout the entire book Hawking never explains what he means by this.
