Within the last several years, the study of quantum many-body chaos has become one of the prominent research themes within both high energy theory and condensed matter physics. The resolution of fundamental problems in a range of fields, from holographic duality and black hole information, to transport and thermalization, have been recognized to be intertwined with our ability to understand chaos. Along separate lines, over the last several decades, chaos practitioners have developed powerful techniques with which to analyze chaotic few-body systems, both classical and quantum. The goal of this symposium is to bring together these communities and discuss ideas for developing new tools with which to gain quantitative control of chaos in quantum field theory.
