As part of the School of Science and Technology Mathematical Sciences Research Seminar Series, Dr Ben Yadin, University of Nottingham presents: Quantum resources from discrete to continuous variables.

Abstract

Quantum physics provides a great variety of new phenomena which have no classical counterparts – including superposition and entanglement. Rather than just being new features to study, it has been found over the past decades that many of these also lead to practical advantages over classical physics for accomplishing certain tasks, ranging from computation to high-precision measurement. In this talk I will introduce the theoretical tools used to systematically study and quantify quantum resources. I will then give a broad overview of some significant resources and their applications, from superposition and quantum correlations in finite-dimensional (discrete) systems to non-classical states of infinite-dimensional (continuous) systems.
