The Mathematics of Quantum Computation

The Mathematics of Quantum Computation

The 4th Advanced School in Computer Science and Engineering

On 15-19 December 2019, we will be organizing a math-oriented quantum computation school in the IIAS at the Hebrew university. No prior knowledge on quantum will be assumed. The school will introduce TCS and math students and faculty, who are interested in the more mathematical side of the area, to the beautiful and fascinating mathematical open questions in quantum computation, starting from scratch. We hope to reach a point where participants gain initial tools and basic perspective to start working in this area.

To achieve this, we will have several mini-courses, each of two or three hours, about central topics in the area. These will include quantum algorithms, quantum error correction, quantum supremacy, delegation and verification, interactive proofs, cryptography, and Hamiltonian complexity. We will emphasize concepts, open questions, and links to mathematics. We will have daily TA sessions with hands-on exercises, to allow for a serious process of learning.

There will be two rounds of registration. The first deadline is 23rd of August. If there is room, there will be another deadline sometime in October; please follow this page for further announcements.

Hope to see you this coming December!

Main Speakers:
Adam Bouland, University of California, Berkeley
Sergey Bravyi, IBM
Matthias Christandl, University of Copenhagen
Sandy Irani, University of California, Irvine
Avishay Tal, University of California, Berkeley
Thomas Vidick, California Institute of Technology

Additional lectures will be given by:
