Title: What Numerics Tells us About Entanglement Transitions

Abstract: Entanglement transitions happen when there is a sharp change in the entanglement structure of a state upon tuning a coupling constant. Examples of entanglement transitions include the transition between the MBL and ergodic phase; and the transition in random tensors networks as a function of bond-dimension. While there are many theoretical proposals for these transitions, they have been largely unconstrained by numerical evidence. Here we discuss recent numerical work that shines light on the properties of various entanglement transitions.
