LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Quantum horizons and blackhole entropy: inclusion of distortion and rotation
Abstract
Equilibrium states of black holes can be modelled by isolated horizons. If the intrinsic geometry is spherical, they are called type I while if it is axisymmetric, they are called type II. The detailed theory of the geometry of quantum type I horizons and the calculation of their entropy can be generalized to type II, thereby including arbitrary distortions and rotations. The leading term in entropy of large horizons is again given by 1/4th of the horizon area for the same value of the Barbero Immirzi parameter as in the type I case. Ideas and constructions underlying this extension are summarized.
