An SLE approach to four dimensional black hole microstate entropy

We model the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy of a four dimensional extremal black hole in terms of classifying particles moving in its near horizon $\operatorname{AdS}_2$ geometry. We use the framework of SLE curves in $\operatorname{AdS}_2$ to classify these particle trajectories in terms of their boundary conditions.
