Quantum information and quantum computation has been a rapidly developing
field attracting interest from mathematicians, physicists, and computer
scientists.
The goal of this conference is to generate interaction between
mathematicians, computer scientists and physicists trying to build
quantum computers. We will
stimulate this interaction with lectures on recent
developments by worldexperts. We shall have lectures on
quantum algorithms, quantum information theory, cryptography, entanglement
and quantum error correcting codes [ we shall have a special lecture on
modular functors].
We shall organize lectures on recent developments in
Fractional Quantum Hall Effect, Josephsonjunction, QED cavities, ion
trapes and quantum optical systems.
The conference will also cover reversible information processing, which is
of interest in classical as well as in quantum computing. The reversible
nature of the quantum evolution of isolated systems makes logical
reversibility on the classical level a prerequisite for any realization of
a quantum computer. Reversible computing does not generate the heat
associated with information erasure, and is therefore of interest in
reducing the heat produced by classical computers.
This conference has been made possible through a generous
donation by James H. Simons.
