However, the construction is strongly dependent upon the spatial slicing of the horizon along its nullgenerators. In this talk, we will explore the effect of two types of reparametrizations of the null generators (1. affine to affine; 2. affine to nonaffine) on the horizon entropy current. For the first case, we'll see that although the entropy current structures change nontrivially, the divergence of the entropy current remains invariant up to linear order in amplitude expansion. For the second case, we'll dualize the horizon entropy current to a boundary entropy current in an asymptotically AdS black hole metric with a dual description in terms of dynamical fluids living on the AdS boundary. Applying the construction to the EinsteinGaussBonnet theory, we'll see that the GaussBonnet terms do not add any corrections to the fluid entropy up to the first order in boundary derivative expansion. However, at the second order in derivative expansion, the boundary current will nontrivially depend on how we choose our horizon to boundary map, which need not be expressible entirely in terms of fluid variables. So generically, the boundary entropy current generated by dualizing the horizon current will not admit a fluid dynamical description.
