There is a lot of buzz recently about connections between quantum information theory and quantum field theory/string theory. I would like to understand in particular how quantum information methods can be relevant in quantum field theories, string theories, AdS/CFT; and vice-versa, i.e. how to apply high-energy physics techniques in information theory.
I would prefer references which are reasonably elementary and to the point, i.e. addressed to information theorists rather than generically to high-energy physicists.
My background is mostly from an information theory context, but with some good basis knowledge of QFT.
