Quantum Entanglement: February 3- February 9, 2013

Date & Time


February 3-9, 2013

The goal of our meeting will be to explore exotic quantum states of matter, with a particular focus on the role of quantum entanglement. A variety of new tools arising from both the study of quantum field theoretic techniques in condensed matter physics, and from the “holographic” duality between field theories and gravity theories coming out of string theory, make this an excellent time to try and rise to the challenge of understanding exotic quantum states.
