Black hole entropy from loop quantum gravity in higher dimensions
Abstract
We propose a derivation for computing black hole entropy for spherical nonrotating isolated horizons from loop quantum gravity in four and higher dimensions. The state counting problem effectively reduces to the well studied 3+1dimensional one based on an SU(2)ChernSimons theory, differing only in the precise form of the area spectrum.
