"Quantum Information Science and High Energy Physics at the Large Hadron Collider"

The relationship between quantum entanglement and an observed thermalization in particle production - even in the Higgs boson channel - at the Large Hadron Collider (Rev. D 98, 054007 (2018)) will be presented.  The considerable amount of collected data at 13 TeV proton-proton collision energy enables systematic investigation of this initial study and additional links between Quantum Information Science and particle physics at the energy frontier.  Near-term future studies will also be presented.

Keith Baker's research is in experimental particle physics: The energy frontier at the Large Hadron Collider in the ATLAS collaboration and precision studies at sub-eV energies.  Current topics include quantum information science in HEP, electroweak symmetry breaking, and beyond the standard model physics searches.
