The interdisciplinary workshop "High-dimensional problems and quantum physics" will take place in Paris (Universite Paris-Est Marne-La-Vallee) from 8 to 10 June 2015. The aim is to bring together statisticians, analysts, and physicists working on statistical aspects of quantum theory, to discuss exchange ideas on current research, with an emphasis on large dimensional problems.
In the theory group of Prof. Uwe R. Fischer at Seoul National University, there is an opening for a Postdoc position for one year, with a possible extension by another year. Possible research topics are novel quantum phases in optical lattices, dipolar gases with strong correlations, the many-body physics of fragmented condensates, dynamical quantum phase transitions, the Kibble-Zurek mechanism of topological defect creation, and quantum state transfer in hybrid quantum systems.
Five new Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) posts are available in the area of quantum technologies, based in the newly established EPSRC Quantum Communications Hub which is led by the University of York, UK. The £24m five-year Hub, directed by Professor Tim Spiller, involves eight universities - Bristol, Cambridge, Heriot-Watt, Leeds, Royal Holloway, Sheffield, Strathclyde and York (lead). Private sector partners include BT, the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and Toshiba Research Europe Ltd (TREL).
71st Scottish Universities Summer School in Physics, SUSSP71: Frontiers in Quantum Dynamics & Quantum Optics
The 71st Scottish Universities Summer School in Physics will be held at the University of Strathclyde 21st July to 2nd August 2015. The official website is sussp71.phys.strath.ac.uk
The last 25 years have seen a shift in the emphasis of fundamental quantum physics theory and experiments, from simply generating and measuring quantum systems towards the purposeful control and manipulation of their dynamics. The main drivers for this are the rapidly-developing fields related to quantum technologies.
The First International Workshop on Trustworthy Quantum Information will be held in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA, from June 28 (Sunday) to July 2 (Thursday) 2015, when the annual Ann Arbor Summer Festival (a2sf.org) is approaching the finale. The workshop’s website is TyQI.org/2015/.
Quantum mechanics promises extraordinary capabilities for computation and cryptography. However, as classical beings, we cannot directly verify quantum states or quantum operations. How can we trust the integrity of quantum hardware?
This is an exciting time to be studying quantum algorithms. As the technological challenges of building a quantum computer continue to be met there is still much to learn about the power of quantum computing. Which problems could a quantum computer solve faster than a classical device? and which problems remain hard? What will be the killer application that incentives industrial investment?
Continuing the popular series of Heilbronn quantum algorithm meetings, we showcase recent highlights in the field.
