Abstract:
Quantum error correction of decoherence and faulty control operations forms the backbone of all of quantum information processing. Despite remarkable progress on this front since the discovery of quantum error correcting codes more than a decade ago, important open problems in both theory and applications to real physical systems remain.

Topological Quantum Matter: From Low-Temperature Physics to Non-Equilibrium Dynamics
23 Aug 2019 • Stockholm, Sweden
Abstract:
Recent advances in the band theory of crystalline materials have singled out topology as a key ingredient in the modern classification of matter, with major impact on measurable electronic properties. Topological band theory has also grown into an emerging paradigm in many areas of physics, and is now used to characterize metamaterials, including photonic, atomic, acoustic, and elastic systems, in both the quantum and classical regimes. As our understanding of topology in physics widens, the incorporation of out-of-equilibrium phenomena is gaining in importance.

Abstract:
Machine learning has entered the field of quantum matter with applications covering quantum materials and the many-body problem. For example, interpretable and computationally-efficient machine learning models are able to capture the structure-property relationship in materials science. In case of the many-body problem, machine learning architectures provide versatile wavefunctions that lead to accurate results and prove to be more flexible than traditional methods. Conversely, methods in physics have also influenced the development of machine learning methods in the case of tensor networks. The workshop will feature talks by leading experts combined with the talks of younger participants to present a broad picture of the activities and best ideas on the use of ML methods in quantum matter.

Francqui Symposium — Wavefunctions and Entanglement in Quantum Field Theory
14 Oct 2019 - 18 Oct 2019 • Brussels, Belgium
Abstract:
The symposium aims at bringing together experts on the topics of variational and nonperturbative methods in quantum field theory, topological and conformal field theory, and quantum entanglement in QFT. Those topics have recently experienced a revival of interest due to advances made in the field of quantum computing and quantum entanglement theory. Area laws and entanglement Hamiltonians have opened up a new window into the structure of quantum correlations in strongly correlated systems, and led to a revisit of the variational principle for quantum field theories in the form of quantum tensor networks. Dualities, as symbolized in the picture of Magritte above, and nonlocal symmetries are proving to be manifestations of emerging order in the entanglement structure, and tensor networks provide representations for the underlying tensor fusion categories. The main purpose of this conference is to bring together the different communities that have been working on the many theoretical aspects of this program.

Abstract:
The fields of spintronics, quantum magnetism, topological matter, and quantum criticality have seen progress with breakthroughs in concepts, techniques, and materials. The unifying goals of these fields are to understand novel collective effects that arise in quantum condensed matter systems with common underlying physics, often united through topology and common symmetries. Despite these common goals, these areas of research are still largely unconnected. This program will offer an opportunity for synergies and defining of new directions.

Model and Material Advances in Multicomponent Correlated Systems
12 Oct 2020 - 16 Oct 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
In the last decade a number of experimental and theoretical discoveries have caused a notable revival of interest in systems with large local Hilbert spaces which realize a variety of intriguing and largely unexplored phenomena such as non-Fermi-liquid behavior, exotic quantum criticality, orbitally selective Mott physics, multipolar/hidden orders and more. While many models have been proposed for each of these phenomena, a single framework to understand the systems with multiple degrees of freedom and, consequently, richer order parameters and richer quasiparticles, is missing.

The Physics of Modularity
01 Dec 2020 - 04 Dec 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
Modularity is at the heart of many deep results in mathematics--from the proof of Fermat’s last theorem to moonshine to the Langlands correspondence. At the same time, modular group representations and automorphic forms underlie many interesting physical phenomena in quantum field theory and string theory, including understanding of dualities, boundary conditions, and supersymmetric black holes, among other things. This conference will bring together physicists and mathematicians to discuss emerging connections between a web of fundamental objects in physics and mathematics, united in the crucial role played by modularity.
Topics:
new moonshines and mock modular forms; vertex operator algebras arising in supersymmetric gauge theories; topological invariants of 3- and 4-manifolds; topological QFTs and topological phases in condensed matter physics; topological string theory, Donaldson-Thomas theory, and enumerative geometry; scattering amplitudes in string theory; 2d conformal field theories, the modular bootstrap, and connections to 3d quantum gravity

Entangled Quantum States of Matter: Classification, Creation, Manipulation, Detection
21 Jun 2021 - 24 Jun 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
This conference will explore many aspects of entangled quantum states of matter, with an eye towards their eventual experimental realization. These include non-Fermi liquids, symmetry-protected topological states, and topologically-ordered quantum matter such as gapped and gapless quantum spin liquids. Some of these states harbor nontrivial boundary or edge modes which will also be highlighted. Different topics will be covered including: the classification of entangled topological states which provide a roadmap of what is possible; investigations on how to engineer models built with realistic ingredients guided by theoretical explorations of their phase diagrams; and proposals for the right observables to detect and manipulate these states which can bring them closer from an abstract idea to reality. This conference will bring together experts on many aspects of highly-entangled quantum matter and help connect experts on mathematical aspects of classification and those with numerical expertise that provide information on phase diagrams with experimentalists striving to engineer these states in the lab.
