In this talk we continue our discussion of parallel repetition for non-local games. We will begin with a brief recap of the previous talk and the famous counterexample due to Feige. We then take a look at a game that has interesting outcomes in the context of the quantum tensor product model. We will conclude by reviewing some of the major results on this topic for a variety of correlation sets.

Quantum computation has been developed as a computationally efficient paradigm to solve problems that are intractable with conventional classical computers. Quantum computers have the potential to support the simulation and modeling of many complex physical systems, not just quantum ones, significantly more rapidly than conventional supercomputers.
Arthur Mehta, IQC
Non-local games, also known as interactive proof systems, have long been an important area of study for mathematicians, physicists and computer scientists. Starting with the famous CHSH game in 1969, it has been known that non-local games are also an ideal area to explore the differences between quantum and classical behaviour. This has motivated the study of the area of non-local games for people working in quantum information.
Fabrication and Growth of 111 SiNWs for Mechanical Spin-Detection
Pardis Sahafi, Institute for Quantum Computing
In our group, vertical Si nanowires grown on a 111 surface are used for force detection in nanoscale NMR and ESR. These measurements require a very long (20 µm) and minimally tapered vertical Si nanowires, to be used as nano-mechanical oscillators with a high quality factor (Q ~ 104).
