Physics Division Seminars bring us speakers on a variety of physics related subjects. Usually these are held in the Building 6008 large Conference Room, at 3:00 pm on the chosen day, but times and locations may vary. For more information, contact our seminar chairman,

The calculation of the entanglement properties of strongly coupled many-body systems, in
particular Renyi and von Neumann entropies, continues to be an active research area with
many open questions. In this talk, I will outline the challenges and describe some of the advances,
by my group and others, towards the characterization of entanglement in non-relativistic many-fermion systems using novel lattice Monte Carlo strategies. I will also present recent connections to nuclear physics that have led to unanticipated non-perturbative insights on the properties of
the entanglement entropy of 2N species of polarized fermions.
