"On Synchronous Quantum Games"
We will discuss the notion of synchronous quantum games. Unlike general quantum games, synchronous games have the advantage of having a purely C*-algebraic characterization of their correlation sets but still retain the full strength of its not necessarily synchronous counterpart. We will talk about how different models of physical systems are distinguished using synchronous games and how the distinguishing of two synchronous correlation sets relates to Connes' embedding problem.
