It is shown that the entropy of systems with large number of degrees of freedom is practically independent of observers, contrary to the claim of hep-th/0310022.

A few words on Entropy, Thermodynamics, and Horizons

We review recent progress in understanding certain aspects of the thermodynamics of black holes and other horizons. Our discussion centers on various ``entropy bounds'' which have been proposed in



Entanglement entropy of nontrivial states

Abstract We study the entanglement entropy arising from coherent states and one-particle states. We show that it is possible to define a finite entanglement entropy by subtracting the vacuum entropy

Entropy and area.

The ground-state density matrix for a massless free field is traced over the degrees of freedom residing inside an imaginary sphere; the resulting entropy is shown to be proportional to the area (and

Notes on spacetime thermodynamics and the observer dependence of entropy

Because of the Unruh effect, accelerated and inertial observers differ in their description of a given quantum state. The implications of this effect are explored for the entropy assigned by such

The entropy per unit area is shown to be finite to all orders in superstring perturbation theory, and the importance of these conclusions to the resolution of the problem of black hole information loss is reiterated.
