Abstract

A short overview of black hole entropy in alternative gravitational theories is presented. Motivated by the recent attempts to explain the cosmic acceleration without dark energy, we focus on metric and Palatini ƒ(R) gravity and on scalar-tensor theories.
Keywords: black hole entropy; alternative gravity; metric and Palatini modified gravity black hole entropy; alternative gravity; metric and Palatini modified gravity
