I will review some recent developments within the AdS/CFT correspondence whereby the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy of certain black holes has been given a microscopic, statistical mechanical foundation in terms of partition functions of the dual field theories. At the quantum level, the entropy of black holes is not exactly equal to one quarter of the area of the event horizon; it receives tiny quantum corrections proportional to the logarithm of the area. I will describe how these logarithmic corrections to the black hole entropy can be computed for certain black holes in AdS and how to match them successfully to a microscopic description based on the AdS/CFT correspondence.
