The Curious Nonexistence of Gaussian 2-designs
Speaker(s): Robin Blume-Kohout
Abstract: Continuous-variable SICPOVMS seem unlikely to exist, for a variety of reasons. But that doesn't rule out the possibility of other 2-designs for the continuous-variable Hilbert space L2(R). In particular, it would be nice if the coherent states -- which form a rather nice 1-design -- could be general... read more

Foundations and Interpretation of Quantum Theory - Lecture 7B
Speaker(s): Robin Blume-Kohout
Abstract: After a review of the axiomatic formulation of quantum theory, the generalized operational structure of the theory will be introduced (including POVM measurements, sequential measurements, and CP maps). There will be an introduction to the orthodox (sometimes called Copenhagen) interpretation of qua... read more

Quantum Knowledge
Speaker(s): Robin Blume-Kohout
Abstract: It's been suggested that "decoherence explains the emergence of a classical world". That is, if we believe our world is quantum, then decoherence can explain why it LOOKS classical. Logically, this implies that without decoherence, the world would not look classical. But... what on... read more

Finding out about quantum systems
Speaker(s): Robin Blume-Kohout
Abstract: One of the cool, frustrating things about quantum theory is how the once-innocuous concept of "measurement" gets really complicated. I'd like to understand how we find out about the universe around us, and how to reconcile (a) everyday experience, (b) experiments on quantum systems, and (c) our th... read more

Reliable Quantum State Estimation from Quantum Scoring Rules
Speaker(s): Robin Blume-Kohout
Abstract: Inferring a quantum system's state, from repeated measurements, is critical for verifying theories and designing quantum hardware. It's also surprisingly easy to do wrong, as illustrated by maximum likelihood estimation (MLE), the current state of the art. I'll explain why MLE yields unreliable an... read more
