Who’s troubled by Bell inequalities, or what is the weight of locality and free choice? An IQS Seminar Series Technical Talk by Pawel Blasiak

September 19, 2022 by | The Institute for Quantum Studies

Wednesday, 21 September 2022 @ 10 AM in 149 Keck Center, or join us on Zoom. Abstract: Is physical reality local, or does what we do here and now have an immediate influence on events elsewhere? Do we have freedom of choice, or are our decisions predetermined? In this talk, I will briefly discuss how

Quantum Feedback Thermal Machines An IQS Seminar Series Technical Talk by Bibek Bhandari

September 12, 2022 by | The Institute for Quantum Studies

Wednesday, 14 September 2022 @ 10 AM in 149 Keck Center, or join us on Zoom. Abstract: We will discuss the thermodynamic aspects of a single qubit-based and coupled qubit-based devices, powered by weak quantum measurements, and feedback controlled by a quantum Maxwell’s demon. Single qubit-based device: We will discuss both discrete and time-continuous operation of

Generalized super-phenomena for arbitrary quantum observables An IQS Seminar Series Technical Talk by Andrew Jordan

September 2, 2022 by | The Institute for Quantum Studies

Wednesday, 7 September 2022 @ 10 AM in 149 Keck Center, or join us on Zoom. Abstract:I will show how to generalize superoscillations to arbitrary observables in quantum mechanics.  Super phenomena of total angular momentum and energy will be described. Using the example of a sequence of harmonic oscillators, I will demonstrate that high energy

Quantum information about unknown parameters can be compressed unboundedly without loss A Technical Physics Talk by David Shukur

July 14, 2022 by | The Institute for Quantum Studies

Wednesday, 27 July 2022 @ 12 PM in 149 Keck Center, or join us on Zoom. Abstract: Several tasks in quantum-information processing involve quantum learning. For example, quantum sensing, quantum machine learning and quantum-computer calibration involve learning and estimating unknown parameters from measurements of many copies of a quantum state that depends on those parameters.

Quantum processes with quantum causal structure A Technical Talk by Fabio Costa

June 16, 2022 by | The Institute for Quantum Studies

Thursday, 30 June 2022 @ 12 PM in 149 Keck Center, or join us on Zoom. Abstract: Quantum Theory requires a background causal structure for its formulation, with temporal and spatial correlations treated in a very asymmetric way. However, spacetime might lose its classical properties  when Quantum Theory combines with General Relativity. This motivates a
