Black Hole Entropy and Induced Gravity

  title={Black Hole Entropy and Induced Gravity},
  author={Ted Jacobson},
In this short essay we review the arguments showing that black hole entropy is, at least in part, " entanglement entropy " , i.e., missing information contained in correlations between quantum field fluctuations inside and outside the event horizon. Although the entanglement entropy depends upon the matter field content of the theory, it turns out that so does the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy A/4¯ hG ren , in precisely the same way, because the effective gravitational constant G ren is… CONTINUE READING
