What you'll study

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".
