Quantum Statistical Mechanics and Quantum Computation
22-23 March 2012
Room 111, Jadwin Hall

Program Organizers: Sanjeev Arora, Benjamin Hsu, Roderich Moessner, Shivaji Sondhi

The workshop's intended purpose is to bring together statistical physicists and computer scientists in a small, focused meeting to explore the intersection between quantum statistical mechanics and quantum computation, specifically quantum complexity theory. Advances in complexity theory have interesting implications for physics, especially for the thorny question of glassiness in physical systems. Conversely, the application of statistical mechanical methods allows useful statements to be made about the average complexity of various problems.  (Note that this location is not in PCTS and there is limited space.)
