Quantum-Enhanced Markov Chain Monte Carlo Simulations with David Layden

Here’s a talk by David Layden on Quantum-Enhanced Markov Chain Monte Carlo Abstract: Sampling from complicated probability distributions is a hard computational problem arising in many fields, including statistical physics, optimization, and machine learning. Quantum computers have recently been used to sample from complicated distributions that are hard to sample from classically, but which seldom […]

Quantum Simulations of Topological Majorana Modes with Oles Shtanko

Quantum Simulations of Topological Majorana Modes Abstract: Modern quantum devices can now outperform classical computers in physical simulations, which makes them an important tool for future physics research. As an example, I will focus on simulating the topological states of matter hosting Majorana modes — the exotic “half-electron” states. Observing Majorana modes in the lab […]

From Many-Body to Many-Time Physics with Gregory A.L. White

An interesting talk on quantum correlations and how they relate to quantum computing. Abstract: Quantum correlations in time have a surprisingly similar structure as spatial quantum correlations, formally related via the Choi-Jamiolkowski isomorphism. As a consequence, multi-time processes are endowed with the same richness as many-body physics, including temporal entanglement and well-defined causal structures. We […]

Microwave Amplifiers for Quantum Information Processing with Florent Q. Lecocq

Speaker Florent Q. Lecocq explains the use of microwave amplifiers for QIP. Abstract: In the late 2000s, the application of low-noise parametric amplifiers to cryogenic microwave measurements revolutionized the field of quantum information processing with superconducting circuits. For example, it enabled high-fidelity dispersive qubit readout, a ubiquitous tool in current superconducting quantum computers. Importantly, it […]
