We derive the Cardy–Verlinde entropy formula for the field theory that lives on the boundary of an asymptotically de Sitter space with a black hole. The boundary theory which is not conformal has a central charge given by the Casimir energy. The instability of the space due to Hawking radiation from the black hole corresponds to an RG flow from the IR to the UV during which the central charge increases. The endpoint of black hole evaporation is de Sitter space which is described by the UV fixed… CONTINUE READING
