Computer algebra in quantum computing and quantum information theory
https://www.iitis.pl/~miszczak/aca2015/

Special Session at the 21st International Conference on Applications of Computer
Algebra 2015 (ACA2015) http://www.singacom.uva.es/ACA2015/, July 20-23, 2015,
Kalamata, Greece.

AIMS AND SCOPE

Quantum information processing provides a plethora of new problems and research
topics suitable for tackling using computer algebra systems. This includes the
problems of characterizing multipartite entanglement, generation and
optimization of quantum computational circuits and analysis of quantum walks and
quantum automata. In the reverse direction, quantum algorithms which outperform
their classical counterparts may be of use in symbolic calculations (e.g.
Grobner Bases).

The aims of this session are to exchange recent results and ideas concerning the
application of numerical, symbolic and algebraic methods in quantum information
processing and quantum mechanics. Topics to be considered include (but are not
limited to):

- simulation and modeling of quantum computation;
- symbolic and numerical methods applied to solving the Schrödinger equation;
- algebraic and geometric analysis of quantum algorithms and protocols;
- methods for constructing and optimizing quantum computational circuits;
- algebraic methods in quantum cryptography;
- quantifying quantum entanglement;
- quantum walks and their utilization for modeling quantum networks;
- quantum automata and algebraic groups;
- logic and algebraic structures from quantum computation;
- quantum programming languages.
