Atish Dabholkar (ICTP)
Zohar Komargodski (Stony Brook & Weizman Institute)
Pavel Putrov (ICTP)
Douglas Stanford (Stanford)
Mithat Ünsal (North Carolina State University)


TOPICS include:
 
  • Quantum information and black holes
  • Entanglement and quantum field theory
  • Anomalies in quantum field theory
  • Semiclassical dynamics and resurgence
  • Mock modularity in physics
  • Fun in Two Space-Time Dimensions
