Theory of Quantum Computation, Communication and Cryptography (TQC)

Quantum computation, quantum communication and quantum cryptography are subfields of quantum information processing, an interdisciplinary field of information science and quantum mechanics. The TQC conference series focuses on theoretical aspects of these subfields. The objective of the conference is to bring together researchers so that they can interact with each other and share problems and recent discoveries. It will consist of invited talks, contributed talks and a poster session.

IQC Summer Golf Tournament

Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) members only golf tournament

Scramble rules.

In a scramble each player tees off on each hole. The best of the tee shots is selected and all players play their second shots from that spot. The best of the second shots is determined, then all play their third shots from that spot, and so on until the ball is holed. We will play in team of 4 and you need to use a shot from each player on your team.

Adrian Lupascu: Quantum superconducting circuits

Adrian Lupascu, Institute for Quantum Computing

Quantum superconducting circuits are nanostructured superconducting electrical networks with Josephson junctions. At low temperatures, their quantum dynamics is properly described by using a few degrees of freedom with a collective character. The parameters in the Hamiltonian depend on the dimensions and topology of the circuit; superconducting quantum circuits therefore behave as artificial atoms.

Nathan Wiebe: Quantum Computer Simulations of Time Dependent Hamiltonians

Nathan Wiebe, University of Calgary

We introduce an efficient quantum algorithm for simulating time-dependent Hamiltonian quantum dynamics on a quantum computer and accounts fully for all computational resources, especially the per-qubit oracle query cost, which has been previously regarded as constant cost per query regardless of the number of qubits accessed.
