Abstract / Description: 

I first introduce the concept of void formation in Heisenberg evolution of operators and provide support that it can be used to distinguish chaotic and integrable systems.

After a brief discussion of applications of void formation to entanglement growths and generation of multi-partite entanglement, I will explain how it can provide insights into evolution of black holes by considering some simple quantum mechanical toy models of black hole evaporation.
