Unitarity constraints on the ratio of shear viscosity to entropy density in higher derivative gravity

We discuss corrections to the ratio of shear viscosity to entropy density $\eta/s$ in higher-derivative gravity theories. Generically, these theories contain ghost modes with Planck-scale masses.

Bounds on black hole entropy in unitary theories of gravity

We consider unitary and weakly coupled theories of gravity that extend Einstein gravity and reduce to it asymptotically at large distances. Our discussion is restricted to such theories that,
