@article{Maldacena1996StatisticalEO, title={Statistical entropy of near extremal fivebranes}, author={Juan Martin Maldacena}, journal={Nuclear Physics}, year={1996}, volume={477}, pages={168-174} }

Abstract The Bekenstein-Hawking entropy of near extremal fivebranes is calculated in terms of a gas of strings living on the fivebrane. These fivebranes can also be viewed as near extremal black holes in five dimensions.
