entanglement and nonlocality theory

Project Description
Any application that aims to harness the power of quantum effects will inevitably be plagued by noise due to its surroundings. Generally, this leads to complex dynamics with memory effects, known as non-Markovian dynamics. With the increase of miniaturisation and read-out frequencies, the influence of such effects will become even more prominent in the future. In this project, the successful applicant will investigate the genuinely quantum nature of non-Markovian dynamics.

Quantum information processing provides a plethora of new problems and research topics suitable for tackling using computer algebra systems. This includes the problems of characterizing multipartite entanglement, generation and optimization of quantum computational circuits and analysis of quantum walks and quantum automata. In the reverse direction, quantum algorithms which outperform their classical counterparts may be of use in symbolic calculations (e.g. Grobner Bases).

The School of Physics of Astronomy at Tel-Aviv University invites applications for a post-doctoral position in Foundations of Quantum Mechanics. The research, led by professors Yakir Aharonov and Lev Vaidman, is focused on time and non-locality in quantum mechanics, with a special emphasis on entanglement, weak measurements and the Aharonov-Bohm Effect.

Title: All entangled quantum states are nonlocal: equivalence between locality and separability in quantum theory

In this talk I will show how, by slightly modifying the rules of nonlocal games, one can prove that all entangled states violate local realism.
