The Holographic principle

- R. Bousso
- Physics
- 12 March 2002

There is strong evidence that the area of any surface limits the information content of adjacent spacetime regions, at $1.4\ifmmode\times\else\texttimes\fi{}{10}^{69}$ bits per square meter. This… Expand

Quantization of four-form fluxes and dynamical neutralization of the cosmological constant

- R. Bousso, J. Polchinski
- Physics
- 18 April 2000

A four-form gauge flux makes a variable contribution to the cosmological constant. This has often been assumed to take continuous values, but we argue that it has a generalized Dirac quantization… Expand

A covariant entropy conjecture

- R. Bousso
- Mathematics
- 24 May 1999

We conjecture the following entropy bound to be valid in all space-times admitted by Einstein's equation: let A be the area of any two-dimensional surface. Let L be a hypersurface generated by… Expand

Conformal vacua and entropy in de Sitter space

- R. Bousso, A. Maloney, A. Strominger
- Mathematics
- 21 December 2001

The de Sitter/conformal field theory (dS/CFT) correspondence is illuminated through an analysis of massive scalar field theory in d-dimensional de Sitter space. We consider a one-parameter family of… Expand

Quantum focusing conjecture

- R. Bousso, Zachary Kenneth Fisher, Stefan Leichenauer, Andreas Wall
- Mathematics
- 8 June 2015

We propose a universal inequality that unies the Bousso bound with the classical focussing theorem. Given a surface that need not lie on a horizon, we dene a nite generalized entropy Sgen as the area… Expand

Holography in general space-times

- R. Bousso
- Physics
- 1 June 1999

We provide a background-independent formulation of the holographic principle. It permits the construction of embedded hypersurfaces (screens) on which the entire bulk information can be stored at a… Expand

Positive vacuum energy and the N-bound

- R. Bousso
- Mathematics
- 27 October 2000

We argue that the total observable entropy is bounded by the inverse of the cosmological constant. This holds for all space-times with a positive cosmological constant, including cosmologies… Expand

Proof of the Quantum Null Energy Condition

- R. Bousso, Zachary Kenneth Fisher, Jason Koeller, Stefan Leichenauer, Aron C. Wall
- Physics
- 8 September 2015

We prove the quantum null energy condition (QNEC), a lower bound on the stress tensor in terms of the second variation in a null direction of the entropy of a region. The QNEC arose previously as a… Expand

Proof of a New Area Law in General Relativity

- R. Bousso, Netta Engelhardt
- Mathematics
- 28 April 2015

A new relation between the area of a class of surfaces and the thermodynamic entropy has been proven, extending the results of Hawking's 1971 area theorem.
