Quantum Science (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Quantum Simulation, Entanglement and Dynamics of Condensed Matter Systems and Field Theories


July 30-31, 2016


Stonehill College
Easton, MA


Jutho Haegeman & Jacob Covey

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Quantum Science is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

This year's Seminar will focus on the most timely ideas from quantum science and address such topics as the design and control of synthetic quantum matter, the evolution and thermalization of out-of equilibrium systems and its relation to many-body localization, as well as the application of entanglement theory and quantum error correction to our understanding of condensed matter, high-energy physics and quantum gravity.
