I will discuss recent development on the large N Cardy limit analysis of supersymmetric partition functions and explain how one can holographically understand entropy of black holes using the AdS/CFT correspondence. As a primary example, I will explain the ABJM theory, which is known to describe M2-branes probing C^4/Z_k in M-theory, whose partition function correctly reproduces the black hole entropy in dual AdS4.
