By Leonard Susskind

Over the past decade the physics of black holes has been revolutionized via advancements that grew out of Jacob Bekenstein's consciousness that black holes have entropy. Steven Hawking raised profound concerns in regards to the lack of details in black gap evaporation and the consistency of quantum mechanics in a global with gravity. for 2 many years those questions questioned theoretical physicists and finally resulted in a revolution within the approach we expect approximately area, time, subject and knowledge. This revolution has culminated in a notable precept known as ''The Holographic Principle'', that's now a big concentration of recognition in gravitational study, quantum box thought and straightforward particle physics. Leonard Susskind, one of many co-inventors of the Holographic precept in addition to one of many founders of String thought, develops and explains those options

17 to obtain the entropy. 14 can be thought of as both entanglement and thermal entropy in the special case of the Rindler space density matrix. 30. Thus the computation of the entropy of Rindler space is reduced to ordinary thermodynamic methods. For the present case of free fields the entropy is additive over the modes and can be estimated from the formula for the thermodynamics of a free 1+1 dimensional scalar field. To compute the total entropy we begin by replacing the infinite transverse X, Y plane by a finite torus with periodic boundary conditions.

8 before the shell passes. Region B is the region outside the shell and must be modified in order to account for the gravitational field due to the mass M. In Newtonian physics the gravitational field exterior to a spherical mass distribution is uniquely that of a point mass located at the center of the distribution. Much the same is true in general relativity. In this case Birkoff’s theorem tells us that the geometry outside the shell must be the Schwarzschild geometry. 9. Once again the particular value of Y + chosen for the trajectory is immaterial.
