■ Main Page

    Modern understanding of quantum phase transition has been significantly enriched by incorporating ideas from quantum information theory. The aim of this school is to focus on a few topical issues at the interface between quantum phase transition and quantum information theory. There will be three invited lecturers, who will give a series of lectures to cover the subject in depth.
