Revolutionary quantum phenomena like superposition, wave-particle duality, uncertainty principle, entanglement and non-locality are today well-established, albeit continuing debates remain about the profound understanding of their manifestation. Further, these concepts have been enabling a quantum technological revolution. This Royal Society Scientific Discussion Meeting aims at gathering the most relevant recent advances on the foundations of quantum mechanics, highlighting their multidisciplinary impact on contemporary society.

QIP Limit
Quantum Information Processing with severely Limited memory and communication

Positions available:
1 PhD student position is currently available in this project.

Project scope:
Study of quantum information processing in the case when communication and memory are limited to just a few qubits.

We are interested in doing this mainly in the context of the three following fields: Foundations, Quantum Information, and Communication Complexity.
