@article{Gmez2006ACO, title={A comment on quantum distribution functions and the OSV conjecture}, author={C{\'e}sar G{\'o}mez and Sergio Monta{\~n}ez}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2006}, volume={2006}, pages={069-069} }

Using the attractor mechanism and the relation between the quanti- zation of H 3 (M) and topological strings on a Calabi Yau threefold M we define a map from BPS black holes into coherent states. This map allows us to represent the Bekenstein-Hawking-Wald entropy as a quantum distribution function on the phase space H 3 (M). This distribution function is a mixed Husimi/anti-Husimi dis- tribution corresponding to the different normal ordering prescriptions for the string coupling and deviations…
