Perspectives on Quantum Many-Body Entanglement
25.09.2013 - 27.09.2013
In recent years there has been an explosion of results at the intersection of quantum information science and condensed matter physics. In particular, understanding the structure and the role of entanglement in quantum many-body systems has underpinned a number of new methods, both analytical and numerical, to better comprehend physical systems with strong correlations.
The aim of this 3-day workshop is to bring together people working on the broad field of entanglement in quantum many-body systems, so that they can discuss and exchange ideas as well as recent developments in the field. Topics included range from tensor network techniques and entanglement-based renormalization group methods, to experimental measurements of many-body entanglement, as well as entanglement spectrum, characterization of topological systems, and entanglement in quantum phase transitions. We are planning to have a very collaborative encounter, with plenty of interaction among practitioners.
