Audience: | Advanced learners |

Seminar series time: | Friday 11:00-12:30 in your time zone, UTC |

Organizers: | Selman Ipek*, Walker Stern* |

A weekly seminar on Friday afternoons at 2:30 pm (GMT+3) held via Zoom that are typically an hour and a half in length, including questions. In previous semesters we emphasized the foundations of measurement-based quantum computation (Fall 2022) and classical simulation of quantum circuits (Spring 2023). This semester (Spring 2024) we will explore categorical structures in quantum mechanics and quantum information theory.
