# Area Law Saturation of Entropy Bound from Perturbative Unitarity in Renormalizable Theories

@article{Dvali2019AreaLS, title={Area Law Saturation of Entropy Bound from Perturbative Unitarity in Renormalizable Theories}, author={G. Dvali}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2019} }

We study the quantum information storage capacity of solitons and baryons in renormalizable quantum field theories that do not include gravity. We observe that a 't Hooft-Polyakov magnetic monopole saturates the Bekenstein bound on information when the theory saturates the bound on perturbative unitarity. In this very limit the monopole entropy assumes the form of an area-law, strikingly similar to a black hole entropy in gravity. The phenomenon appears universal and takes place for other… Expand

We show that non-perturbative entities such as solitons and instantons saturate bounds on entropy when the theory saturates unitarity. Simultaneously, the entropy becomes equal to the area of the… Expand
