Quantum Error Correction for Ising Anyon Systems
Speaker(s): Steve Flammia
Abstract: We consider two-dimensional lattice models that support Ising anyonic excitations and are coupled to a thermal bath, and we propose a phenomenological model to describe the resulting short-time dynamics, including pair-creation, hopping, braiding, and fusion of anyons. By explicitly constructing top... read more

Universal graph states from the optical frequency comb
Speaker(s): Steve Flammia
Abstract: One-way quantum computing allows any quantum algorithm to be implemented by the sole use of single-qubit measurements. The difficult part is to create a universal resource state on which the measurements are made. We propose to use continuous-variable (CV) entanglement in the optical frequency comb ... read more

Three Tales of Entanglement
Speaker(s): Steve Flammia
Abstract: Entanglement is one of the most studied features of quantum mechanics and in particular quantum information. Yet its role in quantum information is still not clearly understood. Results such as (R. Josza and N. Linden, Proc. Roy. Soc. Lond. A 459, 2011 (2003)) show that entanglement is necessary, bu... read more
