CANCELLED: Sewing states of QFT

Speaker: Nima Lashkari, Purdue University

When: March 16, 2020 (Mon), 04:15PM to 05:15PM (add to my calendar)
Location: PRB 595

This event is part of the HET Seminar Series.

The local algebra of Poincare-invariant quantum field theory (QFT) is special in that all states have infinite entanglement. I show that this is due to a remarkable property of QFT that any two local states are equivalent up to unitaries! I give explicit examples of such unitaries. I discuss the subtleties that arise in the presence of conserved charges in QFT.
