argument that might be advanced in support of the
proportionality of entropy and area comes from the holographic
ie, the idea that the state of the part of the
universe inside a spatial region can be fully specified
on the boundary of that region. However, currently the
primary support for this hypothesis comes from black hole
thermodynamics itself. Since we are trying to account for the
occurrence of thermodynamic-like laws for classical black
holes it would therefore be circular to invoke this argument.

- If the entropy density on the horizon takes the form
a function of the Ricci scalar,
one finds that
for some function f
Imposing the local energy conservation equation
then allows one to solve uniquely for f
up to a constant.
