We use the Iyer-Wald formalism to derive an extended first law of entanglement that includes variations in the cosmological constant, Newton's constant and - in the case of higher-derivative theories - all the additional couplings of the theory. In Einstein gravity, where the number of degrees of freedom N2 of the dual field theory is a function of Λ and G, our approach allows us to vary N by keeping the field theory scale fixed or to vary the field theory scale by keeping N fixed. We also…

We study in detail various information theoretic quantities with the intent of distinguishing between different charged sectors in fractionalized states of gauge theories. For concreteness, we focus
Holographic thermodynamics requires a chemical potential for color
The thermodynamic Euler equation for high-energy states of large-N gauge theories is derived from the dependence of the extensive quantities on the number of colors N . This Euler equation relates

Connecting Fisher information to bulk entanglement in holography
A bstractIn the context of relating AdS/CFT to quantum information theory, we propose a holographic dual of Fisher information metric for mixed states in the boundary field theory. This amounts to a
Holographic entanglement density for spontaneous symmetry breaking
We investigate the properties of the holographic entanglement entropy of the systems in which the U(1) or the translational symmetry is broken spontaneously. For this purpose, we define the
Quantum bit threads and holographic entanglement
A novel dual prescription for the generalized entropy is derived that allows the leading quantum corrections in a geometric way with minimal input from the bulk state, and it is shown that the consistency of this special solution requires the semi-classical Einstein’s equations to hold for any consistent perturbative bulk quantum state.

Holographic entanglement entropy and Van der Waals transitions in Einstein-Maxwell-dilaton theory
According to the gauge/gravity duality, the Van der Waals transition of charged AdS black holes in extended phase space is conjectured to be dual to a renormalization group flow on the space of field

Entanglement Renormalization and Holography
We show how recent progress in real space renormalization group methods can be used to define a generalized notion of holography inspired by holographic dualities in quantum gravity. The
Chemical potential in the first law for holographic entanglement entropy

We examine holographic entanglement entropy with higher curvature gravity in the bulk. We show that in general Wald’s formula for horizon entropy does not yield the correct entanglement entropy.
Gravitation from entanglement in holographic CFTs
A bstractEntanglement entropy obeys a ‘first law’, an exact quantum generalization of the ordinary first law of thermodynamics. In any CFT with a semiclassical holographic dual, this first law has an
