Monday February 19: Quantum Coding and High Dimensional Expanders

Tonight at 8:00 Israel time TCS+ Dor Misner on 2-to-2 games.

  

On Monday, February 19, we will have a special day on “Quantum Coding and High Dimensional Expanders” organized by Gilles Zemor.

Sandwiches will be served for lunch, alongside cut vegetables and pastries.

Program:

10:00 – 11:00 Gilles Zemor. Background on quantum computing and coding.

11:30 – 12:30 Gilles Zemor. Quantum stabilizer codes and quantum LDPC codes.

14:00 – 15:00 Dorit Aharonov. Quantum locally testable codes.

15:15 – 16:15 Gilles Zemor. Quantum LDPC codes and high-dimensional expanders.

    Didn’t you disapprove quantum information theory?

    • Gil Kalai says:

      No, no, no.

      1) Quantum information theory is a great subject;

      2) Quantum codes are very interesting mathematical objects;

      3) It is true that I regard the ability to realize quantum computers and quantum codes implausible; Research in this direction is also in the realm of quantum information.

      4) My (minority) view on the matter of quantum computers is irrelevant to the workshop.

      5) In any case, my skeptical angle is irrelevant to my community service, e.g., I organized conferences on quantum information (that did not involve the skeptical angle), etc.
