Quantum information theory generalizes classical notions information and noise, enabling a more complete theory of communication and error-correction that applies to quantum mechanical systems. Quantum error correction will enable us to build quantum computers that will be able to perform calculations that would be infeasible on any conventional computer. In this talk, I will survey various highlights of my research in this area, from the limits of quantum error correction and data compression, to quantum compiling and the study of optimal quantum measurements.
We will be alternating each week between the 4:30 PM (RCH 101) slot and the 2:30 PM (STC 1012) slot. Even if it's not "your" section, you are more than welcome to attend (assuming no lab/class conflicts).
The Phys10 Undergraduate Seminar series welcomes everyone to attend.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
