## Quantum simulation of polaronic effects in quantum gases. University of Antwerp

## Quantum information for quantum fiel Ghent University

Recently, borrowing techniques and concepts from quantum information theory, two powerfull methods (PEPS and MERA) appeared, that allow a new quantitative and qualitative understanding of discrete quantum systems. The overall goal of our research project is to contribute to the exploration of these methods in the context of quantum field theories. This could provide a new framework for the study of the strongly coupled regime in dynamical ...

## Quantum simulation of polaronic effects in quantum gases Ghent University

The focus of the proposed project is on the quantum simulation and study of impurities strongly coupled to an environment, in particular a trapped quantum gas. These quantum mechanical quasi-particles play a key role in the dynamics of the macroscopic quantum liquid. This can be related to the general framework derived first for polarons in the context of solid state physics.

Currently, there is a strong interest in these objects in the ...

## Entanglement and tensor network states for quantum field theories. Ghent University

Schrödinger probably had a cat, but he surely coined the concept of entanglement as the general

characterization of quantum correlations. In his words (1935): "the best possible knowledge of a

whole does not necessarily include the best possible knowledge of all its parts." The theory of

entanglement has then been mainly developed in quantum information theory, where it serves as

a universal resource for the different ...
