### Entropy of the Kerr-Sen Black Hole

We study the entropy of Kerr-Sen black hole of heterotic string theory beyond
semiclassical approximations. Applying the properties of exact differentials
for three variables to the first law thermodynamics we derive the corrections
to the entropy of the black hole. The leading (logarithmic) and non leading
corrections to the area law are obtained.Comment: 8 pages. Corrected references

### Quasi-normal modes, area spectra and multi-horizon spacetimes

We suggest an interpretation for the highly damped QNM frequencies of the
spherically symmetric multi-horizon spacetimes (Reissner-Nordstrom,
Schwarzschild-deSitter, Reissner-Nordstrom-deSitter) following Maggiore's
proposal about the link between the asymptotic QNM frequencies and the black
hole thermodynamics. We show that the behavior of the asymptotic frequencies is
easy to understand if one assumes that all of the horizons have the same
equispaced area spectra. The QNM analysis is then consistent with the choice of
the area spectra to be the one originally proposed for the black hole's horizon
by Bekenstein: A=8\pi n (in Planck units). The interpretation of the highly
damped QNM frequencies in the multi-horizon case is based on the similar
grounds as in the single horizon (Schwarzschild) case, but it has some new
features that are discussed in the paper.Comment: 8 pages, v2: no physics changed, some references added, few sentences

### Quantum corrections and black hole spectroscopy

In the work \cite{BRM,RBE}, black hole spectroscopy has been successfully
reproduced in the tunneling picture. As a result, the derived entropy spectrum
of black hole in different gravity (including Einstein's gravity,
Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity and Ho\v{r}ava-Lifshitz gravity) are all evenly
spaced, sharing the same forms as $S_n=n$, where physical process is only
confined in the semiclassical framework. However, the real physical picture
should go beyond the semiclassical approximation. In this case, the physical
quantities would undergo higher-order quantum corrections, whose effect on
different gravity shares in different forms. Motivated by these facts, in this
paper we aim to observe how quantum corrections affect black hole spectroscopy
in different gravity. The result shows that, in the presence of higher-order
quantum corrections, black hole spectroscopy in different gravity still shares
the same form as $S_n=n$, further confirming the entropy quantum is universal
in the sense that it is not only independent of black hole parameters, but also
independent of higher-order quantum corrections. This is a desiring result for
the forthcoming quantum gravity theory.Comment: 14 pages, no figure, use JHEP3.cls. to be published in JHE

### Logarithmic Corrections to Schwarzschild and Other Non-extremal Black Hole Entropy in Different Dimensions

Euclidean gravity method has been successful in computing logarithmic
corrections to extremal black hole entropy in terms of low energy data, and
gives results in perfect agreement with the microscopic results in string
theory. Motivated by this success we apply Euclidean gravity to compute
logarithmic corrections to the entropy of various non-extremal black holes in
different dimensions, taking special care of integration over the zero modes
and keeping track of the ensemble in which the computation is done. These
results provide strong constraint on any ultraviolet completion of the theory
if the latter is able to give an independent computation of the entropy of
non-extremal black holes from microscopic description. For Schwarzschild black
holes in four space-time dimensions the macroscopic result seems to disagree
with the existing result in loop quantum gravity.Comment: LaTeX, 40 pages; corrected small typos and added reference

### Back reaction, emission spectrum and entropy spectroscopy

Recently, an interesting work, which reformulates the tunneling framework to
directly produce the Hawking emission spectrum and entropy spectroscopy in the
tunneling picture, has been received a broad attention. However, during the
emission process, most related observations have not incorporated the effects
of back reaction on the background spacetime, whose derivations are therefore
not the desiring results for the real physical process. With this point as a
central motivation, in this paper we suitably adapt the \emph{reformulated}
tunneling framework so that it can well accommodate the effects of back
reaction to produce the Hawking emission spectrum and entropy spectroscopy.
Consequently, we interestingly find that, when back reaction is considered, the
Parikh-Wilczek's outstanding observations that, an isolated radiating black
hole has an unitary-evolving emission spectrum that is \emph{not} precisely
thermal, but is related to the change of the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy, can
also be reproduced in the reformulated tunneling framework, meanwhile the
entropy spectrum has the same form as that without inclusion of back reaction,
which demonstrates the entropy quantum is \emph{independent} of the effects of
back reaction. As our final analysis, we concentrate on the issues of the black
hole information, but \emph{unfortunately} find that, even including the
effects of back reaction and higher-order quantum corrections, such tunneling
formalism can still not provide a mechanism for preserving the black hole
information.Comment: 16 pages, no figure, use JHEP3.cls. to be published in JHE

### Back reaction, covariant anomaly and effective action

In the presence of back reaction, we first produce the one-loop corrections
for the event horizon and Hawking temperature of the Reissner-Nordstr\"om black
hole. Then, based on the covariant anomaly cancelation method and the effective
action technique, the modified expressions for the fluxes of gauge current and
energy momentum tensor, due to the effect of back reaction, are obtained. The
results are consistent with the Hawking fluxes of a (1+1)-dimensional blackbody
at the temperature with quantum corrections, thus confirming the robustness of
the covariant anomaly cancelation method and the effective action technique for
black holes with back reaction.Comment: 17 page

### Logarithmic Corrections to Extremal Black Hole Entropy from Quantum Entropy Function

We evaluate the one loop determinant of matter multiplet fields of N=4
supergravity in the near horizon geometry of quarter BPS black holes, and use
it to calculate logarithmic corrections to the entropy of these black holes
using the quantum entropy function formalism. We show that even though
individual fields give non-vanishing logarithmic contribution to the entropy,
the net contribution from all the fields in the matter multiplet vanishes. Thus
logarithmic corrections to the entropy of quarter BPS black holes, if present,
must be independent of the number of matter multiplet fields in the theory.
This is consistent with the microscopic results. During our analysis we also
determine the complete spectrum of small fluctuations of matter multiplet
fields in the near horizon geometry.Comment: LaTeX file, 52 pages; v2: minor corrections, references adde
