Black Hole Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics

  • S. Carlip
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 769)

Abstract

We have known for more than 30 years that black holes behave as thermodynamic systems, radiating as black bodies with characteristic temperatures and entropies. This behavior is not only interesting in its own right; it could also, through a statistical mechanical description, cast light on some of the deep problems of quantizing gravity. In these lectures, I review what we currently know about black hole thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, suggest a rather speculative “universal” characterization of the underlying states, and describe some key open questions.

Keywords

Black Hole Quantum Gravity Entanglement Entropy Event Horizon Black Hole Entropy 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
