# SAdS black holes and spacetime atoms: a heuristic approach

@article{Vargas2017SAdSBH, title={SAdS black holes and spacetime atoms: a heuristic approach}, author={Andr{\'e}s F. Vargas and Ernesto Contreras and Pedro Bargue{\~n}o}, journal={General Relativity and Gravitation}, year={2017}, volume={50}, pages={1-12} }

In this work, both extended phase space and holographic equipartition approaches are employed to develop an exact Van der Waals description of non-rotating $$D=4$$D=4 SAdS black holes as an ensemble of spacetime atoms. After a possible microscopical interaction model is introduced, statistical mechanics techniques, with certain heuristic gravitational constraints, are used to derive the equation of state and the Bekenstein–Hawking entropy. The procedure is generalized to the charged $$D=4$$D=4…

The number density suffers a sudden change accompanied by a latent heat when the black hole system crosses the small-large black hole coexistence curve, while when the system passes the critical point, it encounters a second-order phase transition with a vanishing latent heat due to the continuous change of the number density.
