# Statistical entropy of Schwarzschild black strings and black holes

@article{Das2000StatisticalEO, title={Statistical entropy of Schwarzschild black strings and black holes}, author={Saurya Das and Amit Ghosh and P Mitra}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2000}, volume={63}, pages={024023} }

The statistical entropy of a Schwarzschild black string in five dimensions is obtained by counting the black string states which form a representation of the near-horizon conformal symmetry with a central charge. The statistical entropy of the string agrees with its Bekenstein-Hawking entropy as well as that of the Schwarzschild black hole in four dimensions. The string length which gives the Virasoro algebra also reproduces the precise value of the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy and lies inside…
