    A Derivation of Black Hole Entropy

    I am looking to walk trough hawking and beckenstien's arguments for the proportionality of bh entropy to surface area to better understand black hole entropy. Does anybody know where I can find this calculation? I have taken relativity and qft so I am comfortable with this level of difficulty.

    A Beckenstein Hawking Entropy

    Does anybody know where I can find a walkthrough of the derivation of Black hole entropy the way hawking did it? (I'm not worried about deriving from string theory or lqg) I'm looking to follow along to understand the assumptions in the derivation.
