QuantHEP Seminar, Brian Swingle

Date: March 8, 2023

New session of the QuantHEP Seminar – Quantum Computation and High-Energy Physics Seminar:

Title: Tensor Networks and Holographic Quantum Gravity

Speaker: Brian Swingle (Brandeis University)

Date: Wednesday 8 March 2023

Time: 17h00 Brussels = 16h00 Lisbon = 11h00 New York = 8h00 San Francisco = etc.

Venue: To receive the Zoom link, subscribe to the QuantHEP Seminar mailing list and/or the QuantHEP Seminar Google Calendar or iCal.
Or, in alternative, watch on the QuantHEP Seminar YouTube channel.

Abstract: I will describe the use of tensor networks as a conceptual tool to understand aspects of holographic models of quantum gravity. These networks illuminate some of the many ways in which the emergence of spacetime geometry in quantum gravity is deeply rooted in the physics of entanglement and quantum complexity. I will also describe feedback in the other direction, where we use tensor networks as computational tools for many-body physics (and regulated field theories) partly inspired by connections to gravity and black holes.
