Quantum theory, the physics of the very small, helps us to understand nature and our world by explaining and predicting the behaviour of atoms and molecules. Researchers at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) are interested in what comes after quantum theory, specifically the possibility of a broader theory that replaces quantum theory as a more complete description of nature.

Today marks the second annual World Quantum Day, a day dedicated to exploring and celebrating quantum. Quantum information science and technology helps us to understand our world on a fundamental level. Researchers at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) are discovering and building quantum technologies that will revolutionize areas spanning fundamental research, communication and security, healthcare and medicine, computing and technology, and beyond.

Dequantizing the Quantum Singular Value Transformation: Hardness and Applications to Quantum Chemistry and the Quantum PCP Conjecture
Sevag Gharibian, Paderborn University
The Quantum Singular Value Transformation (QSVT) is a recent technique that gives a unified framework to describe most quantum algorithms discovered so far, and may lead to the development of novel quantum algorithms. In this paper we investigate the hardness of classically simulating the QSVT.

Communication networks are an essential part of our world today, used in transactions from banking to education, global business exchanges to defence. What happens when our private information is no longer private? Powerful quantum computers will have the ability to crack the encryption of public keys that we currently use to secure our data, putting our privacy at risk.
