Alba Cervera-Lierta and José Ignacio Latorre’s work on ‘Maximal Entanglement Generation in High Energy Physics’ has been accepted to SciPost!
This work explores how maximal entanglement is generated at the fundamental level in particle processes such as electron-electron scattering or pair annihilation into photons. It is also shown that the requirement of maximal entanglement constrains the structure of the fundamental interaction. Maximal entanglement is used to obtain a non-trivial prediction for the value of the weak mixing angle, a free parameter of the Standard Model of particles. The results are a first step towards understanding the connections between maximal entanglement and the fundamental symmetries of high-energy physics.
