Date: Thu, Jan 11 - Fri, Jan 12 2024

Hour: 10:00 - 12:00 | 15:00 a 17:00

Location: Seminar Room of Mathamathics department of UPV/EHU

Speakers: David Perez Garcia (UCM & ICMAT, Madrid, Spain)

Lectures on: “Functional inequalities in quantum computing”
David Perez Garcia (UCM & ICMAT, Madrid, Spain)
January 11th-12th, 10:00 am and 15:00, Aula Seminario dept. Matematicas

This course will focus on the role that functional inequalities, like Poincaré or log-Sobolev, play in some important problems associated to quantum computing.
The course is aimed both at researchers already working in quantum computing, as well as at mathematicians interested in mathematical analysis.
No prior knowledge on quantum computing or functional inequalities will be assumed.

- All you need to know about quantum mechanics for quantum computing.
- A crash course on tensor networks.
- Models of quantum computation: circuits, measurement-based, adiabatic, variational, topological.
- Some problems of interest associated to those models and their relation to functional inequalities: an overview
- An illustrative workout example: life-time of quantum memories.


This activity is within the framework of IKUR-Quantum Technologies, initiated by BCAM, DIPC and the mathematics department of UPV-EHU.
