The Structures of Entanglement
Abstract: Entanglement entropy plays a large role in theoretical physics today in quantum mechanics, condensed matter physics, quantum field theory, gravity, and even string theory. I will discuss some of the recent successful applications of entanglement ideas and also some of the challenges we still face. The second half of the talk will largely be devoted to recent progress in understanding thermal corrections to entanglement entropy.
