Title: Optimization and Cryptography in Generalized Physical Theories 

Speaker: Jamie Sikora Affiliation: Perimeter Institute Room: MC 5501

Abstract:

In this talk, I will discuss three important cryptographic tasks in the quantum and post-quantum world. I will discuss the impossibility of bit-commitment and coin-flipping, and also the possibility of physically unforgeable money in the framework of Generalized Physical Theories (GPTs).
