Title: Algebraic formulations of Zauner's conjecture

Speaker: Jon Yard Affliliation: University of Waterloo Zoom: Contact Emma Watson

Abstract:

Tight complex projective 2-designs are simultaneously maximal sets of equiangular lines and minimal complex projective 2-designs. In quantum information theory, they define optimal measurements known as SIC-POVMs (Symmetric Informationally Complete Positive Operator-Valued Measures).  They are conjectured by Zauner to exist in every dimension, even as specific group orbits.
