A QIG seminar on “the Polynomial Hierarchy” by Friederike Dziemba

June 6, 2016

In this post I’d like to share a video we’ve uploaded of a recent talk in the quantum information group seminar series by Friederike Dziemba where she presents a physicist-friendly overview of the polynomial hierarchy, a central idea in computational complexity theory:

A QIG seminar on “Approximating Polynomial Optimizations” by David Reeb

June 6, 2016

The quantum information group, Hannover, organises a regular group seminar where members have the opportunity to speak on a variety of themes from communicating early new results, to general interest topics such as reviews of interesting new papers.

In this post I’d like to highlght a video we’ve uploaded of a recent talk by David Reeb on “Approximating Polynomial Optimizations” via semidefinite programs:

Advanced quantum theory

June 6, 2016

This summer semester (2016) I am giving a course on advanced quantum theory. This course is intended for theorists with familiarity with basic textbook single-particle quantum mechanics. The main objective is to understand how to study many interacting particles within QM. We will cover second quantisation, scattering theory, and some elementary relativistic quantum mechanics.

The course is now well under way and there are already several lectures available on youtube in the following playlist. I’ll be posting the rest there as the course develops.

 


The theory of quantum noise and decoherence, lecture 13

January 27, 2016

The video of my 13th lecture on the theory of quantum noise and decoherence is now available.
Here in lecture 13 I complete the derivation of Lindblad form for completely positive semigroups and discuss quantum jumps:
