Topology, Duality and Entanglement in Quantum Matter

April 11, 2017 - 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Ashvin Vishwanath
Institution: 
Harvard

 I will review recent developments in solid state physics that exposed the role of topology and entanglement in quantum many particle systems. This has led to the prediction of entirely new strongly interacting phases and provided insights into existing states. In this program, dualities have played an important role in the describing strongly interacting quantum systems.  Finally I will discuss ongoing attempts to extend the domain of topological quantum phases to non-equilibrium situations.
