Event Description

Organizers: B. Andrei Bernevig, Duncan Haldane, Igor Klebanov, Joseph Maciejko, Tatsuma Nishioka, Masahito Yamazaki

The aim of this workshop is to bring together condensed matter and high-energy theorists to discuss exciting recent developments in the study of entanglement in quantum many-body systems and field theories. The topics to be covered include entanglement and Rényi entropies, topological entanglement entropy, entanglement spectrum, quantum information, renormalized entanglement entropy, c- and F-theorem, and holographic duality. This is a field where recent efforts by high-energy and condensed matter physicists have been overlapping, and we expect the workshop to stimulate new interdisciplinary discussions and collaborations.
