New Collisions in Physics: Entanglement, Holography & Renormalization

Rob Myers (Perimeter)

November 27, 2014

Abstract: In science, we often see new advances and insights emerging from the intersection of different ideas coming from what appeared to be disconnected research areas. The theme of my seminar will be an ongoing collision between the three topics listed in my title which has been generating interesting new insights into a variety of fields, eg, condensed matter physics, quantum field theory and even quantum gravity. I will briefly introduce each of these three topics separately and also discuss the intersections that have been generating new insights.
