HET Seminar | Leopoldo A. Pando Zayas, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor | "Sub-leading microstate counting of AdS black hole entropy" | via Zoom

I will briefly describe some recent progress in the microscopic understanding of the entropy of certain AdS black holes. I will show how within eleven dimensional supergravity one can compute the logarithmic correction to the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy of certain magnetically charged asymptotically AdS_4 black holes with arbitrary horizon topology.  The result perfectly agrees with the dual field theory computation of the topologically twisted index for a large class of 3d Chern-Simons matter theories.  I will also discuss some progress relevant for rotating, electrically charged AdS_5 black holes.
