Computing black hole entropy in loop quantum gravity from a conformal field theory perspective
Abstract
Motivated by the analogy proposed by Witten between ChernSimons and conformal field theories, we explore an alternative way of computing the entropy of a black hole starting from the isolated horizon framework in loop quantum gravity. The consistency of the result opens a window for the interplay between conformal field theory and the description of black holes in loop quantum gravity.
