Precision microstate counting of AdS black hole entropy

I will describe how within eleven dimensional supergravity one can compute the logarithmic correction to the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy of certain magnetically charged asymptotically AdS_4 black holes with arbitrary horizon topology.  The result perfectly agrees with the dual field theory computation of the topologically twisted index in  ABJM theory and in certain theories obtained from M5 wrapping a hyperbolic 3-manifold. The extension to rotating, electrically charged AdS_4 black holes and the dual superconformal index will also be discussed.
