Summer 2018 Research in Quantum Information Science

The LVC Mathematical Physics Research Group mentors undergraduate mathematics, computer science and physics majors in intensive summer research projects in quantum information science (QIS). QIS is an interdisciplinary field that studies the manipulation of quantum physical systems to execute computation and communication tasks in ways that promise to significantly outperform today's most powerful computers. The LVC group studies quantum entanglement that gives quantum protocols their enhanced speed and power as well as other topics in QIS.

Minimum requirements are an introductory course in linear algebra (MAS 222, usually taken in the spring of the 2nd year), a love of creative problem solving, and a willingness to work hard. Additional study in mathematics, physics, or computer science is desirable, but not required.

[Note: The research program schedule, duration, and stipend will be announced pending funding awards.]
