Title: Entanglement, Holography, and the Quantum Phases of Matter

Electrons in many interesting materials, such as the high temperature superconductors, exhibit low energy states with complex varieties of quantum entanglement. I will describe how the methods of holography, drawn from string theory, have given us a new tool to describe such states, by relating them to theories of gravitation in curved spacetimes with an extra dimension. I will discuss the impact of such ideas on studies of quantum phase transitions, and of novel metals.
