Majorana Fermions, Braiding and Quantum Computing

... Louis Kauffman

Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Room P3.10, Mathematics Building, Wednesday, June 21th, 14:15h

We will discuss the mathematics of Majorana Fermions and the structure of representations of the Artin Braid group that are associated with them. We will discuss how one class of representations is related to the Temperley Lieb algebra, and another class of representations is related to a Hamiltonian constructed from the Bell-Basis solution of the Yang-Baxter equation, and the relationship of this Hamiltonian with the Kitaev spin chain. We will discuss how these braiding representations are related to topological quantum computing.

on 20-06-2017

... Join us for an exciting opportunity to learn about the latest developments in 3D electromagnetic simulation.
The CST® Workshop Series 2017 will give design and research engineers an insight into the latest 3D simulation technology for designing electromagnetic components as well as assembled systems using CST STUDIO SUITE® 2017. It will include presentations as well as live software demos that will be both beneficial for the novice as well as the experienced user.

The workshop will be held in English and is organized in cooperation with Instituto de Telecomunicações.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
