Bekenstein-Hawking entropy from strange metals
Speaker(s): Subir Sachdev
Abstract:

The properties of a strange metal fermion model with infinite-range

interactions turn out to be closely related to those of charged black holes

with AdS2 horizons. I show that a microscopic computation of the ground

state entropy density of the fermion model yields precisely the Bekenstein-Hawking

entropy density of the black hole. The fermion model is UV finite and has no supersymmetry
