Gordon Research Conference — Quantum Biology
19 Mar 2023 - 24 Mar 2023 • Galveston, TX, United States
Abstract:
Over the last decade or so, the field of quantum biology has been propelled by experimental and theoretical efforts that have led to remarkable discoveries at the interfaces of traditional disciplines (e.g., biology, chemistry and physics). Evidence suggests that subtle quantum effects may shape biological processes and functions in living organisms, as exemplified by photosynthesis, enzyme catalysed reactions, and magnetic field effects on spin-dependent reactions in biology, to name a few. This is an exciting and emerging science of the 21st century, where there are many fascinating, fundamental questions that will inspire new ways to better understand and enhance health and medicine.

Workshop — MIP* = RE and the Connes’ Embedding Problem
08 May 2023 - 12 May 2023 • MSRI, Berkeley, CA, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
This workshop is about the recent MIP*=RE result from quantum computational complexity, and the resulting resolution of the Connes embedding problem from the theory of von Neumann algebras. MIP*=RE connects the disparate areas of computational complexity theory, quantum information, operator algebras, and approximate representation theory. The techniques used in the proof of MIP*=RE, such as self-testing and probabilistically checkable proofs, are well-known in theoretical computer science and quantum information, but are unfortunately completely foreign in operator algebras and approximate representation theory. Likewise, the tools of operator algebras and approximate representation theory are mostly unfamiliar in theoretical computer science and quantum information. This has made it challenging to translate the MIP*=RE result and the techniques used to prove it into a form digestible to operator algebraists. The aim of this workshop is to bridge this divide, by giving an in-depth exposition of the techniques used in the proof of MIP*=RE, and highlighting perspectives on the MIP*=RE result from operator algebras and approximate representation theory. In particular, this workshop will highlight connections with group stability, something that has not been covered in previous workshops. In addition to increasing understanding of the MIP*=RE proof, we hope that this will open up further applications of the ideas behind MIP*=RE in operator algebras.

Abstract:
On the edge of a technology revolution, Quantum 2.0 refers to the development and use of quantum superposition and entanglement in large engineered systems. Examples of such large quantum systems include quantum computers and simulators, quantum communication networks and arrays of quantum sensors. New technologies will go far beyond the (quantum 1.0) capabilities offered by single systems.

Gordon Research Seminar — Quantum Control of Light and Matter
05 Aug 2023 - 06 Aug 2023 • Salve Regina University, Newport, RI, United States
Abstract:
Coherent control aims to steer quantum systems towards desired final states through its interaction with light. Recent years have witnessed rapid acceleration of research activity in the field. Along with new theoretical control strategies, latest advances in nonlinear optics and ultrafast laser technology have enabled spatial and temporal coherence of light to be extended through to the UV and X-ray regions. The possibility of engineering and tailoring coherent waveforms is paving the way to novel discoveries in a number of scientific disciplines at the interface between physics, chemistry and biology. Promising applications include the development and control of quantum materials and metamaterials, control of chiral matter, and high-precision spectroscopy on ultrafast time scales.

Gordon Research Conference — Quantum Control of Light and Matter
06 Aug 2023 - 11 Aug 2023 • Salve Regina University, Newport, RI, United States
Abstract:
The conference will focus on the two paradigms, quantum control and quantum technology, which are highly interconnected and merging together very rapidly. The development of the general principles of quantum control is essential for future quantum technology. Quantum control deals primarily with the interaction of laser light with matter. The objective of the control is to modify the state of matter or the course of a chemical or physical process. These control tasks require “intelligent” light fields, which have to be highly controllable in frequency, phase, and intensity.

Workshop I: Quantum Algorithms for Scientific Computation
02 Oct 2023 - 06 Oct 2023 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM), UCLA
Abstract:
The recent development of quantum algorithms has significantly pushed forward the frontier of using quantum computers for performing a wide range of scientific computing problems. This includes solving numerical linear algebra tasks for very large matrices, such as solving linear systems, eigenvalue decomposition, singular value decomposition, matrix function evaluation etc, as well as solving certain high dimensional linear and nonlinear differential equations, such as heat equations and wave equations. This workshop aims to bring together leading experts across different disciplines, including experts in solving related tasks using classical computers that can potentially inspire the development of new quantum algorithms; discuss recent progress made in the development of quantum algorithms for linear algebra and differential equations and the advances in classical algorithms; foster the discussion and pave the path towards identifying and overcoming challenging problems in science and engineering and for various industrial and technological applications.

Frontiers of Quantum Metrology: Fundamental Physics, Unexpected Connections, and Novel Applications
09 Oct 2023 - 12 Oct 2023 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The exceptional gain in precision quantum metrology (QM) enabled new application of quantum sensors to studies of fundamental physics ranging from dark matter searches to detection of gravitational waves. These new developments involve surprising and unexpected connections between QM methods and other quite different fields of physics. The conference will bring together scientists in very different subfields, connecting optics to condensed matter to atomic physics and quantum information to particle and gravitational physics. A major objective is to provide a platform for cross fertilization between theory and experiment and between different research areas to prompt new scientific discoveries. The conference aims to promote collaboration between particle physics experts working on the design and interpretation of fundamental physics studies with quantum technologies and discussing new ideas in QM for future applications.

Workshop II: Mathematical Aspects of Quantum Learning
16 Oct 2023 - 20 Oct 2023 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM), UCLA
Abstract:
What will quantum computers be useful for once we have them? Machine learning and optimization would be important applications if quantum computers were useful for them, but the level of quantum benefit is unknown. One aim of the workshop is to bring together experts in classical and quantum machine learning to discuss the role of mathematical proof as well as experimentation in understanding these topics. A second aim is to explore how classical machine learning techniques can help us build better quantum computers.

Workshop III: Many-body Quantum Systems via Classical and Quantum Computation
06 Nov 2023 - 09 Nov 2023 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM), UCLA
Abstract:
The ability to create and manipulate complex quantum states offers the potential for dramatic increases in computational power, measurement sensitivity, and information security. Understanding the dynamics of such entangled many-body states raises a number of mathematical and physical questions, as such states often lie beyond standard approximate descriptions used in different areas of physics. This workshop is devoted to the related problems of how quantum and classical computers can be used to attack important problems in many-body quantum mechanics across application domains. While the faithful representation of full many-particle Hilbert spaces on a classical computer is exponentially costly, efficient approximate representations for specific purposes have been discovered, such as tensor networks. Studying the dynamics of quantum computers in the current NISQ area leads naturally to questions of robustness and control.
