The Quantum Innovators in Computer Science and Mathematics workshop brings together promising researchers working on theoretical aspects of quantum information and computation in computer science and mathematics.
Talks are open for anyone to attend.
Rui Yang, Southern University of Science and Technology, China
In this talk Dr. Yang will talk about a few quantum devices studied during past years. In the first half, Dr. Yang will talk about his research on nanodevices made of 2d materials. The focus will be on the study of the magnetic impurities in graphene by phase coherent transport. In the second half, the talk will focus on Dr. Yang’s research on the superconducting quantum computation system. The focus will be on the study of a broad-band Josephson Parametric Amplifier.

The goal of the IQC Workshop on Quantum Illumination is to bring together a wide range of participants from these various domains to discuss the state of the art in laboratory research, the range of possible applications, and paths toward those applications.

It is known that several sub-universal quantum computing models, such as the IQP model, Boson sampling model, and the one-clean qubit model, cannot be classically simulated unless the polynomial-time hierarchy collapses. However, these results exclude only polynomial-time classical simulations. In this talk, based on fine-grained complexity conjectures, I show more ``fine-grained" quantum supremacy results that prohibit certain exponential-time classical simulations.
