Welcome to Quantiki

Welcome to Quantiki, the world's leading social portal for everyone involved in quantum information science. No matter if you are a researcher, a student or a fan of quantum theory, this is the place you are going to find useful and enjoyable! While here on Quantiki you can: browse our content, including fascinating and educative articles, then create your own account and log in to gain more editorial possibilities.

Add new content, such as information about upcoming quantum events, open positions for quantum scientists and existing quantum research groups. We also encourage to follow us using social media sites.

On 25-26 June, the Centre for History and Philosophy of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHPSTM), University of Aberdeen, will hold a workshop on 'Quantum States: ontic or epistemic?', with additional generous support from the Scots Philosophical Association.

Registration is free but space is limited, so please email Guido Bacciagaluppi (g.bacciagaluppi (at) abdn.ac.uk) in advance if you wish to attend. Please also indicate if you wish to come to dinner on 25 June.

Submission deadline: 

Friday, August 26, 2011

This event will bring together researchers working on mathematical foundations of quantum physics, quantum computing and information, and spatio-temporal causal structures, and in particular those that use logical tools, ordered algebraic and category-theoretic structures, formal languages, semantical methods and other computer science methods for the study physical behaviour in general.

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

PhD position at the National University of Ireland, Galway: Mathematical analysis of the properties of Quantum Random Walks. Please go to http://www.nuigalway.ie/about-us/news-and-events/hardiman-scholarships/ for application details, and http://www.maths.nuigalway.ie/~gettrick/ for details on the research area.

The Summer School will take place at El Escorial, Spain (http://www.euroforum.es/), a nice and historic city about 50 km to the north of Madrid. See further information below and in the website.

The whole activity will focus primarily on the following topics:

* One-Way Quantum Computation and Statistical Mechanics
* Topological Codes and Statistical Models
* Random Statistical Mechanical Systems and Lattice Gauge Theories
* Quantum Information and Models of Discrete Quantum Gravity
