Quantum Information

Quantum information science involves the exploration and exploitation of physical ideas and phenomena which rely on the quantum mechanical nature of reality.  This involves, in particular, the control, manipulation and measurement of quantum entanglement and quantum dynamics, and the exploration of connections between quantum entanglement and phenomena such as thermalization and equilibration as well as quantum gravity and black hole physics.  The realization of a large quantum information processor could enable quantum simulation of complex physical systems, and current work includes the development and testing of algorithms which may be used on future quantum computers to study otherwise intractable problems in fundamental physics.
