On Monday (23.05.22) at 12.00 c.t. the next date of our physics colloquium will take place.
The speaker will be Prof. Dr Michael Walter (Faculty of Computer Science and CASA Cluster of Excellence, Ruhr-Universität Bochum) on the topic:
"From Quantum Information to Gravity, and Back.".
Gravity is far from the typical playground of the working quantum information scientist. Yet over the past decade a striking picture has begun to form - suggesting that the way space-time emerges in quantum gravity might (through the so-called holographic duality) be intimately connected to the way quantum bits are entangled in a quantum computer. I will give a gentle overview of some activities at this frontier of research and discuss how insights and techniques from quantum information have had an impact on quantum gravity research, and vice versa, leading to a vibrant exchange of ideas. We will see how tensor networks can model space-time, how to teleport a quantum bit through a simulated wormhole, and what error correction has to do with it all.
Excerpt from Dr. Walter's lecture
The introduction will be given by Prof. Dr. Ilya Eremin.
The faculty cordially invites all interested parties. The event will take place in lecture hall HNB and hybrid via Zoom.
