White Rose Quantum Information Workshop: MUBs, SICs, and All That

Time: May 6, 2013, 13:15 - May 7, 2013, 17:00
Location: Derwent College, University of York

This is the second instalment of a series of mini workshops under the same title run by the White Rose Studentship Network "Optimising Quantum Processes and Quantum Devices for future Digital Economy Applications".

Organised by the Quantum Information and Foundations Group in the Department of Mathematics, University of York.

This is a meeting to discuss recent progress and selected current problems in research on constructing and characterising MUBs and SICs. There will be short informal presentations interspersed by discussion periods, and one formal lecture given by

Title: Simple sufficient condition for the coexistence of quantum effects
Abstract: Two quantum effects are called coexistent if they can be measured together. It is known that commutativity and comparability are sufficient but not necessary for the coexistence of two effects. We unify those two conditions to a simple but more widely applicable sufficient condition.

Participation is by invitation only (contact for enquiries: mailto:paul.busch@york.ac.uk) as places are limited. There is no registration fee (and no free catering). Participants are welcome to come along for dinner in town after the event.
