An anomalous behavior in the momentum distribution of particles produced in high-energy physics experiments can be attributed to the dynamics of entanglement and entanglement entropy in these
studies. In processes where entanglement is expected to manifest itself, a thermal behavior is exhibited, and in those cases where entanglement is not expected, this thermal behavior is absent in
the momentum distribution. This presentation will highlight these phenomena using results from the LHC and from Fermilab.

All interested persons are invited to attend remotely—email for information.
