It has been suggested that placing dipolar linear rotors in one-dimensional lattices at zero temperature results in a model that has a transition between ordered and disordered phases. We use the density matrix renormalization group (DMRG) to compute ground states of this model near the critical point to provide further evidence of the phase transition. In particular, we numerically demonstrate divergences in both the entanglement entropy and the correlation length.

Thursday, June 14, 2018 — 12:00 PM EDT

Speaker: Tom Hunter and Neil Henderson

Abstract: A lot of different concepts and possibilities have been discussed. The final session will recap those and put them in perspective, with emphasis on the relevance to a "typical" university start up and the people involved.

Thursday, June 7, 2018 — 9:00 AM EDT

On Thursday, June 7 the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (PI) will participate in the one-day Many-body States and Dynamics Workshop.

The goal of the workshop is to  describe ongoing efforts to experimentally realize quantum many-body states and dynamics, and discuss interesting classes of states and dynamics that could be targeted.

In recent years, circuit quantum electrodynamics (QED) has seen considerable efforts towards protecting quantum information from unwanted sources of decoherence through quantum error correction. Independent of the implementation, this is based on encoding a logical qubit into a stable manifold within a larger Hilbert space, whose symmetries restrict the number of independent errors and make them detectable and correctable.
