Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we review the fundamental concepts of entropy bounds put forward by Bousso and its relation to the holographic principle. We relate covariant entropy with logarithmic distance of separation of nearby geodesics. We also give sufficient arguments to show that the origin of entropy bounds is not indeed thermodynamic, but statistical.
