Event/Organization Administration

Ever more efficient numerical methods, such as quantum Monte Carlo sampling of expanded classes of known sign-problem-free models and tensor network methods, have enabled unbiased studies of a number of exotic phases and continuous phase transitions, such as those involving topological phases and emergent gauge fields. The phenomena of interest often arise in simple looking designer models, which are attractive to a wide variety of theorists, including those who study condensed matter, high energy physics, and quantum information. This broad appeal stems from the fact that these models can be viewed as interesting models of materials, as regularizations of strongly coupled quantum field theories, or as playgrounds to study highly entangled quantum systems. This interdisciplinary workshop thus aims to bring together researchers with the goal of facilitating an exchange of ideas for understanding these models using diverse numerical methods and from the field-theoretic point of view.
