University of Ulm is a coorganizer of the 3rd International Summer School of the SFB/TRR21 "Control of Quantum Correlations in Tailored Matter", Heinrich-Fabri-Haus, Blaubeuren, October 3rd-5th 2010. 

The SFB TRR21 located in Stuttgart, Ulm and Tübingen, invites all interested parties to attend its 3rd annual summer school in Heinrich-Fabri-Haus, Blaubeuren, October 3rd-5th 2010. The topics this year are "quantum effects in biology", "quantum tomography and sensing" and "hybrid quantum systems". Please contact Michael Hellwig (Michael [dot] Hellwig [at] uni-ulm [dot] de) for further information.

Quantiki Video Abstracts


QVA - brief video abstracts to recent papers on the arXiv.

The purpose of Quantiki Video Abstracts is to provide brief video abstracts to recent papers on the arXiv. The abstracts provide a "teaser" for the paper and should guide the audience into your work, emphasizing what you think is the most important result. Everybody is welcome to contribute.

Unitary circuits for strongly correlated fermions

2010-05-28 - 2010-06-01

Carlos Pineda, Thomas Barthel, and Jens Eisert
Phys. Rev. A 81, 050303(R) (2010)

We introduce a scheme for efficiently describing pure states of strongly correlated fermions in higher dimensions using unitary circuits featuring a causal cone. A local way of computing local expectation values is presented. We formulate a dynamical reordering scheme, corresponding to time-adaptive Jordan-Wigner transformation, that avoids nonlocal string operators. Primitives of such a reordering scheme are highlighted. Fermionic unitary circuits can be contracted with the same complexity as in the spin case.
