Title: Quantum information: the interplay of mathematics and physics
Abstract: I will provide an introduction to quantum information, which points to a new connection with experiment on the one hand, and a potential new area of mathematical analysis on the other. I will introduce two recent results about the application of this new area in quantum information: (1) a novel Quantum Central Limit Theorem (QCLT), and (2) a physically realizable protocol for testing and measuring quantum advantage. This talk is based on a collaboration with Arthur Jaffe, and Weichen Gu (PNAS120(25)2023, arXiv: 2302.08423, arXiv:2306.09292).
