Abstract: Quantum Entanglement has puzzled Einstein and many others. Now quantum entanglement is more or less understood and has become a major resource for quantum information processing,  such as quantum computing, quantum cryptography, quantum teleportation, etc. Linearity of quantum mechanics is mysteriously connected to the special theory of relativity. Another important aspect of quantum entanglement is that it might explain the emergence of classical physics from quantum mechanics, which is called "decoherence". In this talk, some of the basics of quantum entanglement and its applications are explained.

Hosts: Harold Baranger and Berndt Mueller
