Topology and Entanglement in Quantum Matter

April 18th, 2018 ASHVIN VISHWANATH Harvard University

I will review recent developments in condensed matter physics that exposed the role of topology and entanglement in quantum many particle systems. This has led to the prediction of entirely new phases and provided insights into existing states. Finally, I will discuss ongoing attempts to extend the domain of topological quantum phases to non-equilibrium situations.
