Abstract

In this talk I shall describe a general formalism based on $AdS_2/CFT_1$ correspondence that allows us to
systematically calculate the entropy, index and other physical observables of an extremal black hole taking into
account higher derivative and quantum corrections to the action. I shall also describe precise microscopic computation of the same
quantities for a class of supersymmetric extremal black holes and compare this with the prediction of $AdS_2/CFT_1$
correspondence.
