Quantum computation: from DWAVE to sheaves
LSK 460
Mon 26 Jan 2015, 3:00pm-4:00pm


I start with DWAVE, a successful BC company building and selling quantum computers. I go through the math, the chip and the controversies. I explain how one can program DWAVE machines and solve NP hard problems. I then talk about measurement based quantum computation (MBQC, also a BC product), lots of math, no controversies but no machines. I explain how it relates to Einstein–Podolsky–Rosen paradox and topos theory.
