Quantum theory and spacetime: allies, not enemies
Speaker(s): Markus Mueller
Abstract: It has become conventional wisdom to say that quantum theory and gravitational physics are conceptually so different, if not incompatible, that it is very hard to unify them. However, in the talk I will argue that the operational view of (quantum) information theory adds a very different twist to th... read more

PIRSA:14110044  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Quantum theory and spacetime: a different perspective
Speaker(s): Markus Mueller
Abstract: Quantum information theory has taught us that quantum theory is just one possible probabilistic theory among many others. In the talk, I will argue that this "bird's-eye" perspective does not only allow us to derive the quantum formalism from simple physical principles, but also reveals surprising c... read more

An Information-theoretic Approach to Space Dimensionality and Quantum Theory
Speaker(s): Markus Mueller
Abstract: It is sometimes pointed out as a curiosity that the state space of quantum theory and actual physical space seem related in a surprising way: not only is space three-dimensional and Euclidean, but so is the Bloch ball which describes quantum two-level systems. In the talk, I report on joint work wit... read more

PIRSA:11050033  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
From operational axioms to quantum theory - and beyond?
Speaker(s): Markus Mueller
Abstract: Usually, quantum theory (QT) is introduced by giving a list of abstract mathematical postulates, including the Hilbert space formalism and the Born rule. Even though the result is mathematically sound and in perfect agreement with experiment, there remains the question why this formalism is a natura... read more

Concentration of measure and the mean energy ensemble
Speaker(s): Markus Mueller
Abstract: If a pure quantum state is drawn at random, this state will almost surely be almost maximally entangled. This is a well-known example for the "concentration of measure" phenomenon, which has proved to be tremendously helpful in recent years in quantum information theory. It was als... read more

PIRSA:07100036  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Theory of the Nernst effect near quantum phase transitions in condensed matter, and in dyonic black holes
Speaker(s): Markus Mueller
Abstract: We present a general hydrodynamic theory of transport in the vicinity of superfluid-insulator transitions in two spatial dimensions described by ``Lorentz''-invariant quantum critical points. We allow for a weak impurity scattering rate, a magnetic field $B$, and a deviation in the density, $rho$, f... read more
