Tantalizing connections between concepts in information theory, gravity and collective phenomena have existed for a long time. The systematic study of complex quantum entanglements in the last decades has elevated these connections to new heights. Quantum entanglement has become a multidisciplinary arena in itself, essential to condensed matter physics, quantum information theory and quantum gravity. The bianual series of workshops “Entangle This:” moves from Madrid to Benasque, keeping this crossroads character by “entangling” experts from these three sciences into a state of free-exchange of ideas and techniques.

List of topics

    - Gravitational holography
    - Quantum complexity
    - Tensor networks
    - Entanglement in many-body systems
    - Entanglement in quantum field theory

We are very happy to announce that this edition of the Entangle This meeting will host a two-day “hands on” tutorial by Prof. Guifre Vidal and his team at X, The Moonshot Factory (formerly Google X), on the use of TensorNetwork (https://github.com/google/TensorNetwork), a new open-source library for tensor network manipulations that are designed for accessibility but also powerful enough for state-of-the-art computations.
