INMS Workshop — Mathematical Physics in Quantum Technology: From Finite to Infinite Dimensions
22 May 2023 - 26 May 2023 • ICMS, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Organizer:
ICMS - International Centre for Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
Quantum technology is a vibrant discipline of research with numerous applications in all areas of science. The particular interest for this workshop lies in the area of quantum information and the control of quantum systems. While traditionally these disciplines have worked with finite-dimensional mathematical models for the sake of simplicity and since it has appeared sufficient, ever-growing physical systems and progress in experimental realisations make it natural to ask what happens in infinite dimensions: in the end, for large systems, infinite-dimensional approximations can often simplify the description of the finite-dimensional system; moreover, many systems are simply not finite-dimensional and hence a reliable mathematical description is needed. In this research workshop we would like to look at a number of current research themes in the wider area of quantum information such as robust quantum control, long-term stability of quantum systems, entanglement breaking channels and the divisibility of channels. By gathering experts from these areas, this workshop will stimulate discussions and cross-pollination, to look at common structures and frameworks, and to study the transition from finite to infinite dimensions and convergence properties in all of them.

RADCOR 2023 — 16th International Symposium on Radiative Corrections: Applications of Quantum Field Theory to Phenomenology
28 May 2023 - 02 Jun 2023 • Crieff, Scottland, United Kingdom
Abstract:
This conference is the 16th in the series of biennial RADCOR conferences on radiative corrections. It is devoted to the applications of quantum field theory to particle physics phenomenology. Subjects will include precision calculations for colliders; progress in higher-loop and higher-multiplicity calculations in the Standard Model; cross sections for new physics; interpretations of experimental data; new techniques for calculations; advances in computer-algebra methods; new theoretical developments.

INMS Workshop — Topological Quantum Computation
09 Oct 2023 - 13 Oct 2023 • ICMS, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Organizer:
ICMS - International Centre for Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
Topology is likely to be featured prominently in any truly useful quantum computation scheme. The hurdle of scalable fault-tolerance is insurmountable with the current incremental progress -- while it is possible to engineer systems supporting hundreds of physical qubits, applications beyond academic interest require millions of qubits to implement robust error correction. Topological quantum computation (TQC) relies upon the preparation of topological phases of matter supporting non-abelian anyons to perform inherently fault-tolerant operations. As errors are corrected at the hardware level through the topological nature of anyons, the problem of scalability is simultaneously overcome. On the other hand, despite years of effort we still don't have unassailable confirmation that non-abelian anyons exist. This workshop will bring together researchers in a diversity of fields in and around TQC for the purpose of broadening and deepening the subject, with an eye towards accelerating the realization of scalable technology.
