Title: Synchronous quantum correlations

Abstract: Synchronous correlations are a special subset of the usual quantum bipartite correlations. These synchronous correlations are of special relevance due to their connection with the weak Tsirelson problem in quantum information theory (equivalently, Connes' embedding problem in operator algebras). In this talk I will discuss some of the very recent advances in what we know about the synchronous correlation sets (specifically, in the finite-dimensional and the commuting operator models) and directions for future work.
