77697 Quantum information methods for many body physics

Lecturer: Dr. Erez Zohar

Quantum Many Body Physics is a very challenging research field, that requires the development of new computation methods, for handling strong interactions and non-pertubative models. The course will introduce two modern approaches to many-body physics and quantum field theory, rooted in quantum information theory: one is quantum simulation – mapping one quantum system to another one which is controllable in the laboratory, and tensor networks, which allow one to perform efficient calculations for physically relevant many body quantum states. The course will include examples from both condensed matter and particle physics (prior knowledge with the demonstrated models is not required).
