Braided Zestings of Verlinde Modular Categories and Their Modular Data | BIMSA-Tsinghua Quantum Symmetry Seminar

Time:2024-01-31 Wed 10:30-12:00

Venue:A3-3-301 ZOOM: 293 812 9202(PW: BIMSA)

Speaker: César Galindo Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá, Colombia

Abstract

In this talk, I will describe the construction known as 'Zesting of Braided Fusion Categories', a procedure that can be used to obtain new modular categories from a modular category with non-trivial invertible objects. I will also present our work on classifying and constructing all possible braided zesting data for modular categories associated with quantum groups at roots of unity. We have produced closed formulas, based on the root system of the associated Lie algebra, for the modular data of these new modular categories.

      Relative entropy for quantum channels | BIMSA-Tsinghua Quantum Symmetry Seminar

      AbstractWe introduce an quantum entropy for bimodule quantum channels on finite von Neumann algebras, generalizing the remarkable Pimsner-Popa entropy. The relative entropy for Fourier multipliers of bimodule quantum channels establishes an upper bound of the quantum entropy. Additionally, we present the Araki relative entropy for bimodule quantum channels, revealing its equivalence to the rela...

      Factorization homology BIMSA-Tsinghua Quantum | Symmetry Seminar

      AbstractThis talk will explain factorization homology, which is intended to abstract and organize the observables of a TQFT. Factorization homology is a construction that associates a chain complex to a (framed) n-manifold M and a (rigid) n-category C. One can rightfully think of C as the domain of a topological QFT, and C as an organization of point/line/surface/… observables of the QFT as th...
