No-signalling assamblages beyond quantum mechanics: when quantum theory can generate extremal points in a post-quantum framework

April 4, 2022 by | Uncategorized

Wednesday, 6 April 2022 @ 12PM in 149 Keck Center, or join us on Zoom. Abstract: It is well known that in the language of  no-signaling boxes  – consistent families of probabilites representing measurement correlations –  the following three sets: local deterministic, quantum and no-signalling constitute the increasing sequence with strict inclusions. Moreover the outer

Dear IQS members, We are delighted to announce that John Howell will be joining us here as a new faculty member at Chapman University in the coming summer.  John is an expert in quantum optics, quantum information, precision measurements, and all manner of optical imaging. An overview of his work is on his Google scholar


"Implications of action principles for quantum foundations"

February 28, 2022 by | Uncategorized

Thursday, March 3rd, 2022, 11 AM, Keck Center 149 Join us on Zoom. Abstract: The classical action has been intertwined with quantum theory for over a century, but the connection between the two continues to be unclear.  Is the action meaningful in its own right, or just a “trick” for generating dynamical equations of motion?

IQS Seminar: Quantum Galaxies

December 2, 2021 by | Uncategorized

Monday, December 13th, 2021, 12 PM, Keck Center 149 https://chapman.zoom.us/j/96152234419?pwd=YXRvdVhPWnkrU0dWZlBkeG9kSk9EUT09 Abstract: All matter, visible and dark, had to originate from some mysterious event in the early universe-baryogenesis and dark-genesis. This necessary physics goes beyond our standard cosmology and the standard model of particle physics. In this talk, I provide a pedagogical introduction to cosmic inflation,


IQS Seminar: Quantum Computing at the Speed of Light

October 28, 2021 by | Uncategorized

Location:  Room 149 of the Keck Center Time and Date:  Wednesday, Nov. 3, at 4pm. https://chapman.zoom.us/j/99926295635?pwd=Vlgwd0wvM1VwV0xQcHNmMHM1UWdvZz09 Meeting ID: 999 2629 5635   Abstract:  Physical advantages to building a quantum computer out of optical frequency photons include: they suffer negligible environment decoherence even at room temperature, there is no cross talk, they network easily into arbitrary
