We are pleased to announce the next Q+ hangout organized by Daniel Burgarth. The event will take place this Wednesday (30.11.2011, 14:00 GMT) and this time Matthew Pusey (Imperial College) will present his work "The quantum state cannot be interpreted statistically".

This lecture series is part of QIC 890/891 held at the University of Waterloo, Spring 2011 and organized by Michele Mosca. We will present our variant of the graphical notation of Penrose, tailored to describe networks of connected tensors representing quantum states, operators and processes, and as a uniting tool for the notation and language of quantum theory, information science and condensed matter physics.

The next Q+ hangout is on the coming Tuesday:

Speaker: Prof. Andreas Winter, Bristol University
Date: 27th of September, 14:00 BST
Title: Zero-error communication via quantum channels, non-commutative graphs and a quantum Lovasz theta-function
Abstract: I will review some of the recent progress on the zero-error capacity problem for quantum channels, centered mainly around my work with Runyao Duan and Simone Severini [1002.2514], which suggests an extension of graphs and graph notions into the non-commutative domain.

Double slit experiments play a key role in Quantum Theory in distinct particle and
wave interactions according to Feynman. In this paper, double path models
together with variant logic principles are applied to establish a simulation system
enabling the exhaustive testing of given targets. Using Einstein quanta interaction,
different quaternion measures are investigated. Under conditions of Symmetry /
Anti-symmetry and Synchronous / Asynchronous interaction, eight groups of

Adrian Kent will give a journal club on Google Plus about his paper http://arxiv.org/abs/1101.4620 on Tuesday the 23rd, 14:00 UK time! This will be a first trial for a potential series of journal clubs
done by g+ hangouts (group video chat). As they are currently restricted to 10 members it will happen on a first come, first served basis.

If you have technical questions please let me know, and make sure to connect to me on Google+.
Hope to see you there! Daniel

We are happy to announce that, by decision of the QUIE2T Advisory Board of Experts and upon approval by the QUIE2T Coordination Steering committee, the 2011 European Quantum Information Young Investigator Award has been awarded jointly to:

We are very sad to inform the quantum community that professor Roman Stanisław Ingarden, famous Polish physicist, passed away on the 12th of July 2011. Before his death he worked as professor emeritus at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. His scientific achievements have been recognised worldwide. In 1976 he published the paper 'Quantum Information Theory' which is, most probably, the first documented case of using the term 'quantum information theory'.

Physicists have always thought quantum computing is hard because quantum states are incredibly fragile. But could noise and messiness actually help things along?
