# Non-supersymmetric attractors and entropy function

@article{Alishahiha2006NonsupersymmetricAA, title={Non-supersymmetric attractors and entropy function}, author={Mohsen Alishahiha and Hajar Ebrahim}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2006}, volume={2006}, pages={003-003} }

We study the entropy of non-supersymmetric extremal black holes which exhibit attractor mechanism by making use of the entropy function. This method, being simple, can be used to calculate corrections to the entropy due to higher order corrections to the action. In particular we apply this method for five dimensional non-supersymmetric extremal black hole which carries two magnetic charges and find the R2 corrections to the entropy. Using the behavior of the action evaluated for the extremal…
