Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Holographic principle, which is inspired by the expression for the entropy of black holes, states that in theories with gravity, physics of any region of space is encoded in the information on the boundary of this region. The general idea of holography found a specific realization in the gauge/gravity duality, which postulates an equivalence between string theory (quantum gravity) on a space and field theory on the boundary of that space. Over the last two decades gauge/gravity duality has led to important breakthroughs in different fields, from physics of strong interactions and black holes to theories of superconductivity and quantum phase transitions. 

For this special issue we welcome manuscripts related to the holographic principle, gauge/gravity duality, and their applications to quantum gravity, strong interactions, and condensed matter physics.

For general metric theories of gravity, we compare the approach that describes/derives the field equations of gravity as a thermodynamic identity with the one which looks at them from entropy bounds. The comparison is made through the consideration of the matter entropy flux across (Rindler) horizons, studied by making use of the notion of a limiting thermodynamic scale l* of matter, previously introduced in the context of entropy bounds. In doing this: (i) a bound for the entropy of any lump of matter with a given energy-momentum tensor Tab is considered, in terms of a quantity, which is independent of the theory of gravity that we use; this quantity is the variation of the Clausius entropy of a suitable horizon when the element of matter crosses it; (ii) by making use of the equations of motion of the theory, the same quantity is then expressed as the variation of Wald’s entropy of that horizon (and this leads to a generalized form of the generalized covariant entropy bound, applicable to general diffeomorphism-invariant theories of gravity); and (iii) a notion of l* for horizons, as well as an expression for it, is given.

The thermodynamic behaviors of a system living in a curved space-time are different from those of a system in a flat space-time. We have investigated the thermodynamics for a system consisting of relativistic massless bosons. We show that a strongly curved metric will produce a large enhancement of the degrees of freedom in the formulae of energy and entropy of the system, as a comparison to the case in a flat space-time. We are mainly concerned with its implications to holography, including the derivations of holographic entropy and holographic screen. Full article
