Quantum Entanglement (2015)

Date & Time

March 15-21, 2015

Shamit Kachru, Stanford University
Hirosi Ooguri, Caltech
Subir Sachdev, Harvard University

Since our last symposium, quantum entanglement has become even more important in areas of theoretical physics ranging from condensed matter physics and quantum information to quantum gravity. In quantum gravity, it is playing a key role in elucidating the mechanism of the holographic duality between field theories and gravity theories. In condensed matter physics, entanglement has become a key organizing principle in new approaches to performing lattice simulations of quantum systems (like DMRG and MERA). It also acts as one of the few `tags’ for topologically ordered states – novel phases of matter not characterized by conventional order parameters. These developments make it an excellent time to bring together theorists in these areas to share their insights and tools.
