SUMMARY:Basic Notions: Dorit Aharonov (HUJI) - The Quantum computation revolution
DESCRIPTION: This talk will be broadcast live using Panopto. The link is \nhttps://huji.cloud.panopto.eu/Panopto/Pages/Viewer.aspx?id=c8fc2733-f704-44d2-97e5-ae510066eb7a\n\nAbstract:\n\nQuantum \ncomputation is in the news; there is a lot of hype, and a long time promise \nof a technological revolution. But why should it interest \nmathematicians? \n\nI will try to explain the subject from a mathematical \nperspective. In the first talk I will define the model of quantum gates and \ncircuits, \n\nand try to provide some insights into the source of quantum \nalgorithmic advantage, using some examples of \n\nquantum algorithms. I will \nalso touch upon the remarkable flexibility of the model; it has several very \ndifferent equivalent \n\ndefinitions, connecting the topic for example to \nMarkov chains, knot invariants, and more. \n\nIn the second talk, I will \ntry to explain some more advanced topics related to quantum \nentanglement; \n\nI have not yet decided exactly what those would include, \nbut options involve some superpo...
