Abstract: In this talk we will present details of quantum extremal surface computations in a simple setup, demonstrating the role of entanglement islands in resolving entropy paradoxes in gravity. The setup involves eternal AdS_2 black holes in thermal equilibrium with auxiliary bath systems. We will also describe the extension of this setup to higher dimensions using Randall-Sundrum branes.
