Title: Entanglement and the Architecture of Spacetime
Speaker: Eugenio Bianchi, Penn State University

Abstract:
The quantum field vacuum is highly entangled, even in causally disconnected regions. In contrast, the state of a quantum geometry of space can be unentangled, resulting in an uncorrelated network of elementary quanta of space. In this talk I discuss how the architecture of spacetime emerges from entanglement between these elementary quanta. I will focus on loop quantum gravity, causal structures and the primordial universe.
