A bstractWe consider entanglement entropy in quantum field theories with a gravity dual. In the gravity description, the leading order contribution comes from the area of a minimal surface, as proposed by Ryu-Takayanagi. Here we describe the one loop correction to this formula. The minimal surface divides the bulk into two regions. The bulk loop correction is essentially given by the bulk entanglement entropy between these two bulk regions. We perform some simple checks of this proposal. 
Thermal corrections to entanglement entropy from holography

Connecting Fisher information to bulk entanglement in holography
A bstractIn the context of relating AdS/CFT to quantum information theory, we propose a holographic dual of Fisher information metric for mixed states in the boundary field theory. This amounts to a
Unravelling holographic entanglement entropy in higher spin theories
A bstractThere are two proposals that compute holographic entanglement entropy in AdS3 higher spin theories based on SL(N, ℝ) Chern-Simons theory. We show explicitly that these two proposals are
State-dependent divergences in the entanglement entropy

A gravity dual of entanglement entropy.
The Ryu-Takayanagi(RT) conjecture proposes that the entanglement entropy of a CFT in the large $c$ limit is equivalent to an area of an appropriate minimal surface in the dual bulk. However, there

We show the entanglement entropy in certain quantum field theories to contain state-dependent divergences. Both perturbative and holographic examples are exhibited. However, quantities such as the
