How to construct a quantum computer

Friday December 6, 2019
3:30 pm

 Presenter:  Kenneth Brown, Duke University
 Series:  Physics and Astronomy Colloquium
 Abstract:  Quantum computers promise to revolutionize the way that we do computational physics. We expect that future quantum computers will help us improve our calculations of molecules, strongly-coupled electrons, and interacting fields. In the present, current devices have limited reliability and we are at present not able to compete with classical computation. In this talk, I will first explain how quantum simulations are mapped to quantum computers and how this this mapping fixes the required reliability. I will then discuss paths for generating reliable devices using a combination of quantum control and quantum error correction. I will conclude with comments about the current state of experimental devices.
 Host:  Akimasa Miyake
 Location:  1100, PAIS

Refreshments will be available before the colloquium, at 03:15 pm, in .
