This series consists of talks in the area of Condensed Matter.
: In this talk I will review the common appearance of torsion in solids as well as some new developments.
In this talk I will describe my recent work on the structure of entanglement in field theory from the point of view of mutual information. I will give some basic scaling intuition for the entanglement entropy and then describe how this intuition is better captured by the mutual information. I will also describe a proposal for twist operators that can be used to calculate the mutual information using the replica method. Finally, I will discuss the relevance of my results for holographic duality and entanglement based simulation methods for many body systems.
