Anomaly-induced Thermodynamics in Higher-dimensional AdS/CFT

Recent derivations of Cardy-like formulae in higher dimensional field theories have opened up a way of computing, via AdS/CFT, anomaly-related universal contributions to black hole entropy from gravitational Chern-Simons terms. We compute the entropy and asymptotic charges for the rotating charged AdS black holes in higher dimensions at leading order of the fluid/gravity derivative expansion in the Einstein-Maxwell-Chern-Simons system. This gives a result that exactly matches the field theory predictions from Cardy-like formulae.
