Quantum information science in quantum many-body systems
October 19, 2004

Dr. Guifré Vidal


Quantum information science offers new insight into the physics of quantum many-body systems. I will discuss recent results concerning the scaling of entanglement in quantum critical phenomena [Vidal, Latorre, Rico, Kitaev, PRL 90, 227902 (2003)] and the efficient simulation of time evolutions in quantum many-body systems [Vidal, PRL 91, 147902 (2003); 93, 040502 (2004)].
