QM Talks@CBPF: David Jennings – 30.08, 16h00Posted: August 26, 2016
The Olympic games are over, but Rio is still receiving many visitors. Among them, next week, we welcome David Jennings, from Imperial College London. David’s interests are really broad, ranging from foundational issues in quantum mechanics up to cosmology. From the micro up to the macro, his research also crosses quantum thermodynamics, and this is the subject he’ll tell us about in our next QM Talks@CBPF. See the description below, and see you there!
Title: Thermodynamics and quantum information theory
Speaker: David Jennings (Imperial College London)
Coordinates: room 601D (tentative), CBPF. 30.08, 16h00
Abstract: How do we separate finite-sized effects and stochasticity from genuinely non-classical features in thermodynamics? In the past two decades, quantum information science has developed a range of results designed to perform precisely this type of separation. While these results were originally motivated by computational, information-processing and foundational concerns, more recently there is increasing work that…
