A bstractWe generalize holographic bit threads to bulk theories with a gravitational action containing higher-curvature terms. Bit threads are a reformulation of holographic entanglement entropy, where the entropy is given by the maximum number of threads emanating from a boundary region into the bulk. We show that the addition of higher-curvature terms adds corrections to the bit thread thickness that depend on the local geometry and thread orientation. Two different methods are given… CONTINUE READING
