Previously we have studied the Generalized Minimal Massive Gravity (GMMG) in asymptotically background, and have shown that the theory is free of negative-energy bulk modes. Also we have shown GMMG avoids the aforementioned “bulk-boundary unitarity clash”. Here instead of space we consider asymptotically flat space, and study this model in the flat limit. The dual field theory of GMMG in the flat limit is a invariant field theory, dubbed (BMSFT) and we have BMS algebra asymptotically instead of Virasoro algebra. In fact here we present an evidence for this claim. Entanglement entropy of GMMG is calculated in the background in the flat null infinity. Our evidence for mentioned claim is the result for entanglement entropy in filed theory side and in the bulk (in the gravity side). At first using Cardy formula and Rindler transformation, we calculate entanglement entropy of BMSFT in three different cases. Zero temperature on the plane and on the cylinder, and non-zero temperature case. Then we obtain the entanglement entropy in the bulk. Our results in gravity side are exactly in agreement with field theory calculations.
