Math, Physics, and Computer Science Colloquium

Defining the Entanglement Entropy of Quantum Fields

March 3, 2021 @ 4:00 pm 5:30 pm

A virtual lecture by Alejandro Satz, PhD
Springfield College Assistant Professor of Physics

If we have two electrons, and measure something about one, how much are we learning about the other one?  This simple question has ramifications throughout fundamental physics, including the mysteries of black holes and the state of the universe immediately after the Big Bang. In the colloquium, Satz will give a nontechnical introduction to these problems highlighting recent research.

Join us on Zoom:

Satz earned his PhD in mathematical sciences from the University of Nottingham in Nottingham, England. He joined the Springfield College Department of Math, Physics, and Computer Science in fall 2020 and teaches both physics and mathematics courses.

This event is free and open to the Springfield College community.For more information, contact Kellie Lavoie at klavoie2@springfield.edu.
