Title

Quantum many body physics in the age of quantum information

Abstract

Quantum information theory has provided a new language for describing quantum correlations and entanglement. In this colloquium, it will be highlighted how the language of qubits and EPR pairs can be used to tackle the ubiquitous quantum many body problem. Topics covered will be entanglement, frustrated many body systems, quantum tensor networks and topological quantum order.
