# Gravity from quantum information

@article{Lee2013GravityFQ, title={Gravity from quantum information}, author={Jae-weon Lee and Hyeong-Chan Kim and Jungjai Lee}, journal={Journal of the Korean Physical Society}, year={2013}, volume={63}, pages={1094-1098} }

We suggest that the Einstein equation can be derived from Landauer’s principle applied to an information erasing process at a local Rindler horizon and Jacobson’s idea linking the Einstein equation with thermodynamics. When matter crosses the horizon, information on the matter disappears, and the horizon entanglement entropy increases to compensate for the entropy reduction. The Einstein equation describes an information-energy relation during this process, which implies that entropic gravity…

The term smooth entanglement entropy transfer is introduced, a phenomenon that is a consequence of the causality-cancellation property of the quantum gravity environment, and it is proved that the Cauchy area expansion, along with the dilation of the Rindler horizon area, is a strict corollary of the causation.

The Einstein equation is derived from the form of black hole entropy together with the fundamental relation $\delta Q=TdS$ connecting heat, entropy, and temperature, and its validity is seen to depend on the existence of local equilibrium conditions.

The results for a massless, minimally coupled scalar field can be summarized by $S_{ent}=0.30 r_H^2/a^2$, which resembles the flat space formula, although here the horizon radius, $r_H$, is time-dependent.
