COLLOQUIUM "Observation of entanglement in top quark pairs at ATLAS" by James Howarth (UofG) as part of Theory meets Experiment


ATLAS recently observed quantum entanglement in pairs of top quarks using 13 TeV data, the first time that entanglement has been observed in fundamental quarks and at the highest ever energy scales. In this colloquium I will explain how this ground breaking measurement was achieved, how it highlights limitations in our current state-of-the-art Monte Carlo simulations, and the implications of the result in the wider context of quantum information. I will also explain what direction this exciting new field of study at collider experiments might take and highlight new opportunities for collaborations between quantum information and collider physics.

This colloquium is part of the Theory meets Experiment Workshop:
