Single atoms have been spotted doing the quantum version of the random walk by physicists in Germany. This sighting of a “quantum walk” could help in the design of quantum search algorithms, or in the understanding of the transition from the quantum, microscopic world to the classical, macroscopic world.

The QI group at the University of Leeds is launching a new taught MSc programme in Quantum Technologies this year.

The Department of Applied Mathematics at H.I.T. – Holon Institute of Technology (Holon, Israel) invites applications for a postdoctoral position in Mathematical Physics. The successful candidate is expected to be involved into a research at the crossroad of the Random Matrix Theory, Quantum Chaotic Systems, and the Theory of Integrable Hierarchies. Previous research record in one of those fields is an advantage, strong analytical skills is a must.

Quantum Information Theory is the study of information-processing tasks such as storage and transmission of information, or manipulation of entanglement, using quantum-mechanical systems. Until very recently, the study of these processes was limited to the case in which the required resources, e.g. information sources, communication channels or entanglement resources, were assumed to be available for an infinite number of independent uses.
