motivation
Motivation

Black hole entropy counts the degrees of freedom of something unclear

Investigate common characteristics

of general theories of gravity

Building blocks of quantum gravity.

Identifying the canonical conjugate of Wald entropy from the action

Brown :gr-qc/9506085

Black hole:

  • radial direction
  • Time - second normal direction.
  • Integration over the surface area of the horizon

physical meaning
Physical meaning

Quantum black hole is expected to be super-position of metrics with conical singularities.

example of quantum gravity strings
Example of quantum gravity - Strings
  • String theory identifies the “microstates “ of a (extremal) black hole as modes of different vibrations of the strings. (hep-th/9602043)
  • These vibrations create metrics with conical singularities at the horizon with (N integer ). (hep-th/0212210)

In string theory the “microstates“ of the black hole are metrics with (quantized) conical singularities at the horizon.

summary
Summary
  • In any theory of gravity the entropy of a black hole is canonical to the opening angle in
  • Prediction - a quantum black hole is a superposition of metrics with conical singularities.
  • The prediction fits quantum gravity of string theory.
