Statistical entropy of Schwarzschild black strings and black holes
Abstract
The statistical entropy of a Schwarzschild black string in five dimensions is obtained by counting the black string states which form a representation of the nearhorizon conformal symmetry with a central charge. The statistical entropy of the string agrees with its BekensteinHawking entropy as well as that of the Schwarzschild black hole in four dimensions. The string length which gives the Virasoro algebra also reproduces the precise value of the BekensteinHawking entropy and lies inside the stability bound of the string.
