### 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.

**Prerequisites**: Quantum Mechanics and/or Operator Algebra, Statistical Mechanics, Classical Mechanics. Knowledge of Quantum Field Theory is not required; however, familiarity with the basics of General Relativity and Riemannian geometry will be assumed.

Topics that we will cover:

**General Quantum Systems and Entanglement Theory****Tensor Networks and Geometry****Quantum Fields and Entanglement****Basics of Conformal Field Theory****Towards the Emergence of Spacetime and Holography**
