A Minimal black hole entropy

  1. Mar 8, 2016 #1
    If we plug the Planck mass into the Bekenstein-Hawking formula for the BH entropy, we'll get S = A/4l^2 = 4πGM^2/cħ = 4π ≈ 12.56 nat for the minimal Schwartzschild black hole.

    If we assume that each entropy unit is a compact area on the horizon, can we consider the minimal BH a dodecahedron, e.g. a rhombic dodecahedron? Can minimal entropy of the BH indicate the topology of a spacetime voxel?

    Does minimal entropy of a BH mean that the minimal unit of spacetime is what limits the size a BH into which a mass can collapse?
