### Description

Quantum information theoretic concepts such as entanglement entropy provide interesting information on QCD dynamics. I will discuss in particular the role of entanglement in the context of particle production from the Schwinger mechanism for an expanding QCD string. In the bosonized Schwinger model of QED confined to 1+1 dimensions, entanglement between rapidity regions leads actually to a thermal spectrum of excitations around the coherent field with a time-dependent temperature at early time.
