The concepts of using quantum information methods and tools in high-energy physics are triggering more and more attention in our community in recent years, after the pioneering workshop which took place at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in 2018. We are convinced that now it is the time for the follow-up and the discussion of new achievements.

Invited speakers: 

Oliver Keith Baker (Yale University)

Joao Barata ( Brookhaven National Laboratory)

Paweł Caputa (Warsaw University) 

Adrien Florio (Brookhaven National Laboratory)

      Entanglement entropy from non-equilibrium lattice simulations

      The entanglement entropy is a quantity encoding important features of
      strongly interacting quantum many-body systems and gauge theories, but
      its analytical study is still limited to systems with high level of
      symmetry. This motivates the search for efficient techniques to
      investigate this quantity numerically, by means of Monte Carlo
      calculations on the lattice. In this talk, we present a lattice
      determination of the entropic c-function using a novel algorithm based
      on Jarzynski's equality: an exact theorem from nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. After presenting benchmark results for the Ising
      model in two dimensions, where our algorithm successfully reproduces the
      analytical predictions from conformal field theory, we discuss its
      generalization to the three dimensional Ising model, for which we were
      able to extract universal terms beyond the area law. Finally we comment
      on future applications to gauge theories.
