Welcome to Quantiki

Welcome to Quantiki, the world's leading portal for everyone involved in quantum information science. No matter if you are a researcher, a student or an enthusiast of quantum theory, this is the place you are going to find useful and enjoyable! While here on Quantiki you can: browse our content, including fascinating and educative articles, then create your own account and log in to gain more editorial possibilities.

This year’s edition of the VCQ summer school will feature a diverse program focused on the emerging field of quantum technologies. Presented by distinguished physicists, the lecture series will emphasize on quantum sensing & imaging. Finally, the program includes networking and social events where researchers in all stages of their careers can meet and exchange their ideas.

How isolated quantum systems approach and reach equilibrium and thermalization constitutes a long-standing question, which goes back to the very early days of quantum mechanics. Unitary time evolution indeed seems to put severe limitations on the possibility for a closed quantum system to reach thermal equilibrium. This tension is usually solved by means of the celebrated Eigenstate Thermalization Hypothesis (ETH) which ultimately allows for local observables to thermalize their expectation values. The intuition behind ETH strongly relies on random matrix theory.

We invite you to the next QWebminar. This time we will have a talk by Cem Say about what factorization is, its seeming hardness for classical computers, the magic of quantum, and a description of Shor’s approach.

QWebinar: Factorization in the Quantum World

Date: Wed, April 28, 2021, 15:00 (GMT/UTC),
Moderators: Özlem Salehi (QWorld & QTurkey) and Abuzer Yakaryılmaz (QWorld)
Organizers: Agnieszka Wolska (QWorld) and Abuzer Yakaryılmaz (QWorld)

From Cem:
“The most famous quantum algorithm is 27 years old already. I wish I could give an overview of Shor’s factorizaton algorithm that is simultaneously easy to understand and able to convey the huge intellectual achievement of this amazing construction. This cannot be done in an hour, but I will do my best anyway. We will look at what factorization is, its seeming hardness for classical computers, the magic of quantum, and a description of Shor’s approach.”

A fixed-term PDRA position is available at Imperial College London to work with Raj Patel, Steve Kolthammer, and Ian Walmsley on experimental photonic quantum simulation. The project is part of the UKQTP Quantum Science and Simulation hub. Please see:
