How isolated quantum systems approach and reach equilibrium and thermalization constitutes a long-standing question, which goes back to the very early days of quantum mechanics. Unitary time evolution indeed seems to put severe limitations on the possibility for a closed quantum system to reach thermal equilibrium. This tension is usually solved by means of the celebrated Eigenstate Thermalization Hypothesis (ETH) which ultimately allows for local observables to thermalize their expectation values. The intuition behind ETH strongly relies on random matrix theory.

We invite you to the next QWebminar. This time we will have a talk by Cem Say about what factorization is, its seeming hardness for classical computers, the magic of quantum, and a description of Shor’s approach.

QWebinar: Factorization in the Quantum World

Date: Wed, April 28, 2021, 15:00 (GMT/UTC),
Moderators: Özlem Salehi (QWorld & QTurkey) and Abuzer Yakaryılmaz (QWorld)
Organizers: Agnieszka Wolska (QWorld) and Abuzer Yakaryılmaz (QWorld)

From Cem:
“The most famous quantum algorithm is 27 years old already. I wish I could give an overview of Shor’s factorizaton algorithm that is simultaneously easy to understand and able to convey the huge intellectual achievement of this amazing construction. This cannot be done in an hour, but I will do my best anyway. We will look at what factorization is, its seeming hardness for classical computers, the magic of quantum, and a description of Shor’s approach.”

A fixed-term PDRA position is available at Imperial College London to work with Raj Patel, Steve Kolthammer, and Ian Walmsley on experimental photonic quantum simulation. The project is part of the UKQTP Quantum Science and Simulation hub. Please see:


We offer a 2-years post-doctoral position (with extension possible) for a motivated researcher to join our work on spin qubits in silicon carbide (SiC). Colour centres in SiC have recently be shown to uniquely combine excellent spin properties with ultrastable optical transitions for spin-photon interfacing (see, for example, our collaborative work published in Nature Communications 10, 1954).

Experimental Postdoc position on quantum simulation with dipolar quantum gases of Erbium atoms (Univ. Innsbruck & IQOQI)
In this project you will create dipolar Fermi and Bose gases of Erbium atoms and to use them to study strongly-correlated lattice spin systems and spinor system. Moreover, the newly discover ultra-narrow inner-shell optical transition in Erbium (similar to a clock transition in alkali-earth atoms) will be used to access new regime of control and manipulation for quantum simulation and quantum optics physics.
