PIRSA:08090072  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Relational time and intrinsic decoherence.
Speaker(s): Gerard Milburn
Abstract: One approach to the problem of time in canonical quantum gravity is to use correlations between a carefully chosen physical system and all other physical systems to provide a simulacrum of time. Time emerges as an ordering of correlated measurement results. In many ways this is an echo of an idea in... read more

PIRSA:07090002  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Simulating unitary dynamical maps on a quantum computer.
Speaker(s): Gerard Milburn
Abstract: I will discuss an alternative approach to simulating Hamiltonian flows with a quantum computer. A Hamiltonian system is a continuous time dynamical system represented as a flow of points in phase space. An alternative dynamical system, first introduced by Poincare, is defined in terms of an area... read more
