Fall 2019: “Quantum Information and Geometry”

Course description: This course is an introduction to information-theoretic methods in fundamental physics. It is aimed at graduate students and advanced undergraduate students in Physics and Mathematics. I strongly encourage interested Mathematics students with knowledge of operator algebras to participate.

  2. Tensor Networks and Geometry
  3. Quantum Fields and Entanglement
  4. Basics of Conformal Field Theory
  5. Towards the Emergence of Spacetime and Holography
