Entanglement in Field Theory and Gravity: December 5-7, 2016

Organized by: Matthew Headrick, Alex Maloney, and Mark Van Raamsdonk.

Attendee ListDownload Talk Schedule

It from Qubit, the Simons Collaboration on Quantum Fields, Gravity, and Information, will host a workshop December 5-7 at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics. The workshop will explore the role of entanglement, in all of its manifestations, in quantum field theory, quantum gravity, and holography. Special sessions will be devoted to two of the Collaboration’s ongoing projects: Constraints on gravitational spacetimes from entanglement inequalities; and Multipartite entanglement in quantum field theory and gravity.
