SUMMARY:Basic Notions: Dorit Aharonov (HUJI) - The Quantum computation revolution
DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\nQuantum computation is in the news; there is a lot of hype, and a long time \npromise of a technologicalrevolution. Butwhy should it interest \nmathematicians?\nI will try to explain the subject from a mathematical perspective. In the \nfirst talk I will define the model of quantum gates and circuits,\nand try to provide some insights into the source of quantum algorithmic \nadvantage, using some examples of\nquantum algorithms. I will also touch upon the remarkable flexibility of the \nmodel; it has several very different equivalent\ndefinitions, connecting thetopic for example to Markov chains, knot \ninvariants, and more.\nIn the second talk, I will try to explain some more advanced topics related \nto quantum entanglement;\nI have not yet decided exactly what those would include, but options involve \nsome superposition of\nEinstein's spooky action at a distance, quantum error correcting codes, and \nsome hints about the remarkable recent resolution\nof Connes' embedding conjecture, using ideas related to qua...
