Colloquia


Colloquia

We plan to return partly to in-person talks. These talks will be held in the interim lecture hall B 0.32 at MPQ and can additionally be attended online. Some talks remain online only.

For events in the Lecture hall 2G plus regulations now apply. This means that in order to join an in-person talk, only vaccinated or recovered persons (“2G”) who can show their vaccination certificate or the CovPass App and a valid negative test result (“plus”) are admitted to the Lecture Hall. Vaccinated or recovered persons who have already received their third “booster vaccination” are exempt from the obligation to get tested.
Whether facemasks have to be worn inside the lecture hall will be communicated in the e-mail announcement for each talk separately. In any case, you will need a medical facemask in the hallway. Audience not affiliated with MPQ are welcome to join in person as long as they meet 2G criteria.


Details on how to participate online are distributed via the mailing lists [wiss-mpq] and [Mpq-colloquium-stream]. To receive this information, please register using the adjacent link.

Scientific organization of the talks:  Dr. Stephan Dürr and Dr. Thomas Udem

Speaker: Prof. Barbara Kraus

Quantum Information theory: From Entanglement to Quantum computing (MCQST-Colloquium) (Prof. Barbara Kraus)

  • (in-person)
  • Date: Nov 9, 2021
  • Time: 14:30
  • Speaker: Prof. Barbara Kraus
  • Universität Innsbruck, Austria
I will talk about two important challenges within Quantum Information: Multipartite entanglement and the verification of quantum computations. The better understanding of multipartite entanglement is highly relevant for many areas of physics. The entanglement contained in states can be sorted (partially ordered) via the study of state transformations. However, it turns out that this partial order is trivial in the whole Hilbert space. As will be explained in the talk, this fact does not prevent us from a better understanding of entanglement properties which are relevant in a physical context. Entanglement plays also an important role in quantum computations and the verification thereof. I will discuss some, very different, protocols designed for the verification of quantum devices. [more]
