The representation theory of the Clifford group, with applications to resource theories
Speaker(s): David Gross
Abstract: I will report on an ongoing project to work out and exploit an analogue of Schur-Weyl duality for the Clifford group. Schur-Weyl establishes a one-one correspondence between irreps of the unitary group and those of the symmetric group. A similar program can be carried out for Cliffords. The permut... read more

PIRSA:08100075  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Culs-de-sac and open ends
Speaker(s): David Gross
Abstract: I present three realizations about the SIC problem which excited me several years ago but which did not - unsurprisingly - lead anywhere. 1. In odd dimensions d, the metaplectic representation of SL(2,Z_d) decomposes into two irreducible components, acting on the odd and even parity subspaces respec... read more
