Current and Upcoming IQST Seminars

  1. Wednesday 15th November, 2017 3:00-4:00pm in ST 131

    Kunal Sharma [Louisiana State University]

    Title: Fundamental limitations on communication over phase-insensitive Gaussian channels
    Abstract: One of the main goals of quantum information theory is to find the optimal rates of communicating classical or quantum information when allowing for quantum effects. In particular, the characterization of the quantum and private capacities of a thermal channel is of principal interest, as thermal channels model free-space communication with background thermal radiation affecting the input state, in addition to transmission loss. In our work, we establish upper bounds on the energy-constrained quantum and private capacities of the thermal channel. In this seminar talk, I will discuss three different techniques to establish our upper bounds on the energy-constrained quantum capacity of a thermal channel, and additionally, I will compare these bounds for different parameter regimes of background thermal radiation and transmission loss. I will also discuss a strategy that leads to an improved lower bound on the energy-constrained private capacity of a thermal channel.
    Joint work with Mark M. Wilde (LSU), Sushovit Adhikari (LSU), and Masahiro Takeoka (NICT), and available at https://arxiv.org/abs/1708.07257.



  2. Friday 17th November, 2017 3:00-4:00pm in TBA

    Charles Zhaoxi Xiong [Harvard University]

    Title: Minimalist approach to the classification of symmetry protected topological phases
    Abstract: Topological insulators and superconductors epitomize a large class of phases that fall outside Landau’s symmetry-breaking paradigm. By now it is clear that more than one phases can exist in a phase diagram even without spontaneous symmetry breaking. These are gapped phases at zero temperature distinguished by their topological properties and cannot be tuned to each other without breaking the symmetry or closing the gap. The topological properties manifest themselves in such forms as gapless boundary modes or anyonic excitations, which have garnered considerable interest due to their potential application to quantum computation.
    In this talk, we will consider an interacting generalization of topological insulators and superconductors called “symmetry protected topological” (SPT) phases, which have been under intense investigation in recent years. I will first review efforts in the field to classify SPT phases, and then indicate how a seemingly abstract object in mathematics can unify various existing classification proposals and shed new light on the classification problem.
