Quantum Entanglement and Topological Order
This five-day summer course provides talented young postgraduate students and postdoctoral scholars with an interest in quantum entanglement and topological order an opportunity to learn about the latest advances through formal and informal interactions between the participants and leading experts in the field.
In the past ten years, the development of quantum information theory has provided us with many useful tools and languages to probe the nature of topological phases of quantum matter. Recently, very important progress have been made toward building up a paradigm for topological phases and phase transitions using the concept of "quantum entanglement".
