School's Weekly Seminar

A Quantum information perspective on quantum phase transitions

by Dr. Abolfazl Bayat (University College London)

Wednesday, 6 January 2016 from to (Asia/Tehran)
at Larak ( Seminar Room )
Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences, Larak Garden, Artesh Hwy, Tehran, Iran
Description

In this talk I discuss novel ways for exploring quantum phase transitions using quantum information and quantum thermodynamics. I will show that not only we can reproduce all the known features of quantum phase transitions but also go beyond the scope of traditional Landau-Ginzburg paradigm and address interesting class of quantum phase transitions in which no spontaneous symmetry breaking happens at criticality.
