Special Issue "Black Hole Thermodynamics II"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2016)
Black hole thermodynamics is an active area of research that greatly affects our current understanding of gravitational physics, as well as provides key insights into the nature of quantum gravity. In this Special Issue, we aim to collect a combination of review articles with a series of original contributions that reflect current developments in areas related to the black hole thermodynamics, broadly defined. Especially, papers on the following topics are welcome: the mystery of the black hole entropy, information paradox, quantum evaporation, black hole phase transitions and their AdS/CFT interpretation, Lambda as thermodynamic variable, holographic nature of gravity, thermodynamic geometries, entanglement entropy, universal area product formulae, etc.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
