Quantum Information Meets Quantum Matter

Quantum Information Meets Quantum Matter -- From Quantum Entanglement to Topological Phase in Many-Body Systems by Bei Zeng, Xie Chen, Duan-Lu Zhou, Xiao-Gang Wen (arxiv.org)
This is the draft version of a textbook, which aims to introduce the quantum information science viewpoints on condensed matter physics to graduate students in physics (or interested researchers). We keep the writing in a self-consistent way, requiring minimum background in quantum information science. Basic knowledge in undergraduate quantum physics and condensed matter physics is assumed. We start slowly from the basic ideas in quantum information theory, but wish to eventually bring the readers to the frontiers of research in condensed matter physics, including topological phases of matter, tensor networks, and symmetry-protected topological phases.
