Blackhole entropy in loop quantum gravity
Abstract
We calculate the blackhole entropy in loop quantum gravity as a function of the horizon area and provide the exact formula for the leading and subleading terms. By comparison with the Bekenstein Hawking formula, we uniquely fix the value of the 'quantum of area' in the theory.
