Physics Colloquium

Abstract:

We review recent progress in understanding Quantum Field Theory. The new results connect three thorny and fundamental questions: The symmetries of second order phase transitions, monotonicity of the renormalization group flow, and the entanglement entropy of the vacuum. We give examples of various applications for theories ranging from boiling water to Quantum Chromodynamics.
