The long string at the stretched horizon and the entropy of large non-extremal black holes

14 Feb 2016 Mertens Thomas G. Verschelde Henri Zakharov Valentin I.

We discuss how long strings can arise at the stretched horizon and how they can account for the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy. We use the thermal scalar field theory to derive the asymptotic density of states and corresponding stress tensor of a microcanonical long string gas in Rindler space... (read more)
