Last time we looked at unitary correlation sets, and obtained an analogue of Tsirelson's problem that is equivalent to the original one. In this talk, we'll see how unitary correlations can be thought of as strategies for a certain class of two-player (extended) non-local games, called quantum XOR games. Moreover, we'll see that Connes' embedding problem is equivalent to determining whether every quantum XOR game has the same winning probability in the commuting model as in the approximate finite-dimensional model.
Carbon Based Flexible and Multi-Component Self-Powered Devices
Carbon and its allotropes have been researched intensively for their potential applications in various fields including energy storage/generation, sensor technology, and wearable electronics. Graphene and graphene oxide have especially drawn attention during the last decade due their unique electrical, chemical, and mechanical properties.
