It has been realized in the last decade that information
theoretic quantities can be computed from the gauge/gravity
correspondence. A holographic formula for the entanglement entropy of a
subsystem in a d-dimensional conformal field theory living at the boundary
of the classical bulk theory has been proposed. In this context, we study
the flow of holographic entanglement entropy in dimensions d>=3. It is
observed that a generalized entanglement temperature T_g can be defined
which gives the Hawking temperature in the infrared region and leads to a
generalized thermodynamics like law E=[(d-1)/d]T_g S_{REE}, where S_{REE}
is the renormalized holographic entanglement entropy. Furthermore, in the
IR limit, T_g produces the Hawking temperature along with some correction
terms. The IR limit of S_{REE} gives the thermal entropy of the black hole
as the leading term, however, does not have a logarithmic correction
unlike the BTZ black hole. We also compute the exact form of the bulk
geometry from a 1+1-dimensional conformal field theory using the
holographic principle. The results show the influence of the boundary
ultra-violet cutoff on the bulk metric.
