Quantum field theory and quantum information
Lecturer: Tatsuma Nishioka
In these lectures I will discuss the constraints quantum information theory imposes on the dynamics of quantum field theory. The basics of quantum information will be reviewed with the emphasis on quantum information measures. The definition and computational methods of the measures will be developed in the framework of quantum field theory. To exemplify the power of quantum informational approach to quantum field theory, I will derive some constraints on renormalization group flow and energy conditions.
The master course students are expected to fully understand the contents at the standard level.
The students are expected to solve the standard problems provided by the lecturer.
