"Quantum Physics and Geometry"
Bellavista Relax Hotel
Levico Terme (Trento, Italy)
July 4-6, 2017
Quantum information theory is at the intersection of physics, computer
science and mathematics. While its potential is still in the way of
herebeing developed, what we already know suggests that it may have a
dramatic impact on everyday technologies. Given the completely new logic
underlying a quantum computer, new mathematical and computer science tools
are required to optimize its architecture and then fully exploit its
In this workshop we plan to explore possible interdisciplinary links between
quantum information and geometry and contribute to the creation of a
community of researchers trying to export advanced mathematical concepts to
this new applicative field. The objective is to convey to a single event
leading experts from the two fields, so to explore interdisciplinary
connections and contribute establishing an active and long-lasting
The workshop is associated to the PhD
course "Quantum Information and Geometry" that will be given at Trento
University by JM Landsberg (Texas A&M University, USA) during the months
of June-July 2017 financed by INDAM and will cover all background material
from both physics and computer science.
