抄録

We investigate the nature of asymptotically de Sitter space-times containing a black hole. We show that if the matter fields satisfy the dominant energy condition and cosmic censorship holds in the considered space-time, the area of the cosmological event horizon for an observer approaching a future timelike infinity does not decrease; i.e., the second law is satisfied. We also show under the same conditions that the total area of the black hole and the cosmological event horizon, a quarter of which is the total Bekenstein-Hawking entropy, is less than 12π/Λ, where Λ is the cosmological constant. The physical implications are also discussed.
