A Derivation of Black Hole Entropy

  1. Jul 14, 2016 #1
    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.
