Abstract, Event Details: 

This talk concerns the notion of quantum information scrambling and its relation to thermalization and quantum chaos. I will show how we can diagnose and calculate the rate of information scrambling and how we can measure scrambling using quantum control techniques. Finally, I will discuss several recent experiments in this direction as well as what we hope to learn more broadly by studying scrambling.
