Between Field Theory and Gravity


Quantum complexity is a fundamental concept that measures the difficulty of constructing a quantum state from a reference state and a given set of resources. Initially studied in the context of quantum computation, it has recently proven to be a powerful tool in gravitational physics, especially in quantifying the information processing capacity of black holes. The upcoming workshop aims to bring together leading experts in the field to discuss recent progress in defining complexity in theories with infinitely many degrees of freedom, and to explore the potential of quantum complexity in shedding light on the emergence of spacetime in holographic theories of quantum gravity. Through focused discussions and exchange of ideas, we hope to initiate new collaborations and research projects that will advance our understanding of this exciting and rapidly evolving field.
