# Microscopic black hole entropy in theories with higher derivatives

@article{Kraus2005MicroscopicBH, title={Microscopic black hole entropy in theories with higher derivatives}, author={Per Kraus and Finn Larsen}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2005}, volume={2005}, pages={034-034} }

We discuss higher derivative corrections to black hole entropy in theories that allow a near horizon AdS3 × X geometry. In arbitrary theories with diffeomorphism in- variance we show how to obtain the spacetime central charge in a simple way. Black hole entropy then follows from the euclidean partition function, and we show that this gives agreement with Wald's formula. In string theory there are certain diffeomorphism anoma- lies that we exploit. We thereby reproduce some recent computations…
