|Title:||Statistical entropy of charged two-dimensional black holes||Authors:||Teo, E.||Issue Date:||25-Jun-1998||Citation:||Teo, E. (1998-06-25). Statistical entropy of charged two-dimensional black holes. Physics Letters, Section B: Nuclear, Elementary Particle and High-Energy Physics 430 (1-2) : 57-62. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||The statistical entropy of a five-dimensional black hole in Type II string theory was recently derived by showing that it is U-dual to the three-dimensional Bañados-Teitelboim-Zanelli black hole, and using Carlip's method to count the microstates of the latter. This is valid even for the non-extremal case, unlike the derivation which relies on D-brane techniques. In this letter, I shall exploit the U-duality that exists between the five-dimensional black hole and the two-dimensional charged black hole of McGuigan, Nappi and Yost, to microscopically compute the entropy of the latter. It is shown that this result agrees with previous calculations using thermodynamic arguments. © 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
