Entropic Gravity  

In General > s.a. dynamical triangulations; information theory.
* Idea: A proposal by Verlinde in which space is emergent through a holographic scenario; Gravity is explained as an entropic force caused by changes in the information associated with the positions of material bodies.
* Two approaches: Holographic gravity, in which Einstein's equation arises from keeping entropy stationary in equilibrium under variations of the geometry and quantum state of a small region, and thermodynamic gravity, in which Einstein's equation emerges as a local equation of state from constraints on the area of a dynamical lightsheet in a fixed spacetime background.
