Black hole entropy in canonical quantum gravity and superstring theory
Physical Review D, Particles and fields
In this paper the entropy of an eternal Schwarzschild black hole is studied in the limit of innite black hole mass. The problem is addressed from the point of view of both canonical quantum gravity and superstring theory. The entropy per unit area of a free scalar eld propagating in a xed black hole background is shown to be quadratically divergent near the horizon. It is shown that such quantum corrections to the entropy per unit area are equivalent to the quantum corrections to thedoi:10.1103/physrevd.50.2700 pmid:10017902 fatcat:oxaly3gblzgpjk5cigkmjzwmve
