Entanglement Entropy and Holography

Entanglement entropy is emerging as an useful observable to characterize quantum  systems. In this talk we review the definition of entanglement entropy, its evaluation and application in the study of quantum field theories. We then focus on  two dimensional  field theories which are scale invariant and show how entanglement entropy has played an important role in understanding quantum gravity through holography.
