• Applying the first and generalized second laws of thermodynamics for a realistic process of near critical black hole formation, we derive an entropy bound, which is identical to Bekenstein's one for radiation. Relying upon this bound, we derive an absolute minimum mass $\ensuremath{\sim}0.04\sqrt{{g}_{*}}{m}_{\mathrm{Pl}}$, where ${g}_{*}$ and ${m}_{\mathrm{Pl}}$ is the effective degrees of freedom for the initial temperature and the Planck mass, respectively. Since this minimum mass coincides… CONTINUE READING
