The first law of general quantum resource theories
Speaker(s): Lidia del Rio
Abstract: From arXiv: 1806.04937, with Carlo Sparaciari, Carlo Maria Scandolo, Philippe Faist and Jonathan Oppenheim We extend the tools of quantum resource theories to scenarios in which multiple quantities (or resources) are present, and their interplay governs the evolution of the physical systems. We d... read more

Journal club: Frauchiger-Renner no-go theorem for single-world interpretations of quantum theory
Speaker(s): Lidia del Rio
Abstract: In this talk I will go over the recent paper by Daniela Frauchiger and Renato Renner, "Single-world interpretations of quantum theory cannot be self-consistent" (arXiv:1604.07422). The paper introduces an extended Wigner's friend thought experiment, which makes use of Hardy's paradox to show that... read more

PIRSA:16010072  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Copies, currencies and catalysis: beyond the tensor product, pure states and other spherical cows
Speaker(s): Lidia del Rio
Abstract: How may we quantify the value of physical resources, such as entangled quantum states, heat baths or lasers? Existing resource theories give us partial answers; however, these rely on idealizations, like the concept of perfectly independent copies of states used to derive conversion rates. As these ... read more

PIRSA:11070064  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Thermodynamics and Information
Speaker(s): Lidia del Rio
Abstract: Thermodynamics is, at heart, a probabilistic theory about the state of physical systems. Traditionally, however, our knowledge of systems is modelled implicitly: for instance, it is often assumed that we only have access to a few macroscopic parameters, like the temperature, energy, or volume of a g... read more

PIRSA:10100086  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
The thermodynamic meaning of negative entropy
Speaker(s): Lidia del Rio
Abstract: Landauer's erasure principle states that there is an inherent work cost associated with all irreversible operations, like the erasure of the data stored in a system. The necessary work is determined by our uncertainty: the more we know about the system, the less it costs to erase it. Here, we analy... read more
