This paper studies cross sections inside black holes and conjectures a universal inequality: in a static (
)-dimensional asymptotically planar/spherical Schwarzschild-AdS spacetime of given energy
and AdS radius
, the “size of cross section” inside black holes is bounded by
. To support this conjecture, it gives the proofs for cases with spherical/planar symmetries and some special cases without planar/spherical symmetries. As one corollary, it shows that the complexity growth rate in complexity-volume conjecture satisfies the upper bound argued by quantum information theory. This makes a first step toward proving the conjecture that the vacuum black hole has fastest complexity growth in the systems of same energy. It also finds a similar bound for asymptotically flat black holes, which gives us an estimation on the largest interior volume of a large evaporating black hole.
