Condensed Matter Seminar Series
Chaos and quantum computation
ITP & CNRS Toulouse (France)
Thursday August 14, 1h30 pm, Room 234, Physics Building
Host: Denis Ullmo
Quantum computers hold great promises, since the massive
parallelism due to the superposition principle of quantum
mechanics may enormously increase the speed of a computational
process. Still, they are prone to errors due to
disorder and decoherence. The effects of disorder
and static imperfections leading to quantum chaos one
the operability of a quantum computer will be assessed.
Methods for the
efficient simulation of classical and quantum chaotic
systems on such a quantum processor will also be presented,
and the effects of errors on such algorithms discussed.
