Abstract

The holographic RT and HRT prescriptions allow us to explore general properties of entanglement entropy in a class of QFTs. We will first examine the consistency of holographic entanglement entropy with expectations that follow from the basic definition as detailed in Sect. 2.4 We will also see that there are certain features that are peculiar to holographic systems, in part owing to the fact that we are working in the large ceff limit. We reiterate that the holographic entanglement entropy prescriptions are geared to capturing the leading semiclassical part of entanglement in terms of geometric data. Subleading corrections require ascertaining the bulk entanglement, as discussed in the previous section. All in all, this leads to some unexpected features, which at first sight seem unconventional, but are easily understood once one fully appreciates the implications of the limit ceff ≫ 1 being effectively a semiclassical regime of the QFT.
