Workshop IV: Topology, Quantum Error Correction and Quantum Gravity

November 27 - December 1, 2023


Quantum error correction has deep implications beyond quantum computing—two examples being its connections to topological phases of matter and quantum gravity. Recent exciting developments in these directions include the discovery of optimal quantum LDPC codes, progress towards the quantum PCP conjecture such as the proof of the NTLS conjecture, and the invention of Floquet codes. The workshop will focus on such new developments with the goal of finding better quantum error correction codes and new applications to open problems in quantum complexity theory, topological phases of matter, and quantum gravity. Error correction is also crucial in black hole physics. This workshop will explore (not necessarily unital) coding and complexity problems emerging from the information paradox.

This workshop will include a poster session; a request for posters will be sent to registered participants in advance of the workshop.
