Abstract :

Long-range "entanglement" was initially pointed out by Einstein as a strange property

predicted by quantum mechanics that he felt was so contrary to common-sense that

experiments to test it would surely undermine the quantum theory. But when experimental

tests eventually became possible, quantum mechanics was vindicated. In recent years,

it has been realized that, instead of merely being an abstract and obscure philosophical

issue in the interpretation of the quantum theory, entanglement is in fact perhaps its

central feature, and in particular, plays an important role in the new "topological (quantum)

states of matter" which have unexpected properties that have given rise to much recent

excitement in condensed matter physics. I will describe some examples of this and how

ideas from quantum information theory and condensed matter physics have fruitfully

joined together.
