Abstract We review the recently established relationships between black hole entropy in string theory and the quantum entanglement of qubits and qutrits in quantum information theory. The first example is provided by the measure of the tripartite entanglement of three qubits (Alice, Bob and Charlie), known as the 3-tangle, and the entropy of the 8-charge S T U black hole of N = 2 supergravity, both of which are given by the [ S L ( 2 ) ] 3 invariant hyperdeterminant, a quantity first introduced… Expand
