Quantum Games and Quantum Computing

Thursday, October 19, 12:00 P.M. ROOM 268 in the Olin Science Building

Abstract: What’s the shortest message you can send someone? It might seem like the answer is a single bit: a 0 or a 1.

But the world is much stranger than that! We can also send quantum bits (or qubits) that can be 0 or 1 or “both” 0 and 1 at the same time.

These quantum messages have surprising power for computing and sending information. I’ll talk about how we can better understand these strange quantum messages by studying games that use quantum messages instead of classical messages.
