10 years of the quantum SWITCH: state of the art and new perspectives
Speaker(s): Giulio Chiribella
Abstract: The quantum SWITCH is the simplest example of indefinite causal structure. Technically, it is a higher-order transformation that takes two physical processes A and B in input and combines them in a coherent superposition of two alternative orders, AB and BA. In the past decade, the quantum SWITCH ha... read more

Cyclic quantum causal models and violations of causal inequalities
Speaker(s): Ognyan Oreshkov
Abstract: I will present an extension of the recent theory of quantum causal models to cyclic causal structures. This offers a novel causal perspective on processes beyond those corresponding to standard circuits, such as processes with dynamical causal order and causally nonseparable processes, including pro... read more

Composing causal orderings
Speaker(s): Aleks Kissinger
Abstract: When studying (definite or indefinite) causal orderings of processes, it is often useful to consider higher-order processes, i.e. processes which take other processes as their input. However, as a recent no-go result of Guerin et al indicates, our naive first-order notions of "composition" of proces... read more

Quantum mechanics and the covariance of physical laws in quantum reference frames
Speaker(s): Flaminia Giacomini
Abstract: In physics, every observation is made with respect to a frame of reference. Although reference frames are usually not considered as degrees of freedom, in all practical situations it is a physical system which constitutes a reference frame. Can a quantum system be considered as a reference frame and... read more

What happens when we quantize time?
Speaker(s): Alexander Smith
Abstract: The lesson of general relativity is background independence: a physical theory should not be formulated in terms of external structures. This motivates a relational approach to quantum dynamics, which is necessary for a quantum theory of gravity. Using a covariant POVM to define a time observable, I... read more

Levitating microdiamonds towards testing the macroscopic limits of the quantum superposition principle
Speaker(s): Gavin Morley
Abstract: We are building an experiment in which a levitated 1 ┬Ám diamond containing a nitrogen vacancy (NV) centre would be put into a spatial quantum superposition [1-3]. This would be able to test theories of spontaneous wavefunction collapse [4]. We have helped theory collaborators to propose how to do t... read more
