***Invitation*** to the inaugural lecture of Norbert Schuch


Join us on Wednesday, April 6, at 16:15 CEST, for Norbert Schuch's inaugural lecture at the University of Vienna.

Quantum Information and Quantum Many-Body Systems: Mathematics, Physics, Computation

Lecturer: Norbert Schuch (University of Vienna - Faculty of Mathematics & Faculty of Physics, leader of the "Quantum Information and Quantum Many-Body Physics" research group)

Time & Date: Wednesday, 6 April 2022

Location: online via Zoom or live at the Sky Lounge (Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz 1, 1090 Vienna - RSVP by 5 April 2022)

Hosts: Radu Ioan Bot, Martin Fally

Quantum many-body systems hold a wide range of challenges, both in their mathematical description and modelling and in the analytical and numerical understanding of their rich physical phenomena. At the same time, quantum many-body systems also constitute a fruitful use case for quantum computers and simulators. Those phenomena are all driven by the presence of complex quantum correlations, called entanglement, whose study is central to the field of quantum information. In my talk, I will give an overview over the interdisciplinary field between quantum information and quantum many-body physics which aims to understand quantum many-body systems from an entanglement-based perspective, and highlight some of the key questions and results arising both in mathematics, physics, and quantum computation.
