Simons Foundation awards new prestigious collaboration: It from Qubit: Quantum Fields, Gravity, and Information

Blog, Department News

The Simons Foundation is pleased to announce the establishment of two Simons Collaborations in Mathematics and the Physical Sciences: the Simons Collaboration on Homological Mirror Symmetry, directed by Tony Pantev, University of Pennsylvania, and the Simons Collaboration on It from Qubit: Quantum Fields, Gravity, and Information, directed by Patrick Hayden, Stanford University. Simons Collaborations bring together groups of outstanding scientists to address mathematical or theoretical topics of fundamental scientific importance where a significant new development creates a novel area for exploration or provides a new direction for progress in an established field. Collaborations are funded for four years with the possibility of renewal for an additional three years.
