Computer algebra in quantum computing and quantum information theory is a special special session at the 21st International Conference on Applications of Computer Algebra 2015 (ACA2015), July 20-23, 2015, Kalamata, Greece.
Aims and scope
Quantum information processing provides a plethora of new problems and research topics suitable for tackling using computer algebra systems. This includes the problems of characterizing multipartite entanglement, generation and optimization of quantum computational circuits and analysis of quantum walks and quantum automata. In the reverse direction, quantum algorithms which outperform their classical counterparts may be of use in symbolic calculations (e.g. Grobner Bases).
The aims of this session are to exchange recent results and ideas concerning the application of numerical, symbolic and algebraic methods in quantum information processing and quantum mechanics. Topics to be considered include (but are not limited to):
- simulation and modeling of quantum computation;
- symbolic and numerical methods applied to solving the Schrödinger equation;
- algebraic and geometric analysis of quantum algorithms and protocols;
- methods for constructing and optimizing quantum computational circuits;
- algebraic methods in quantum cryptography;
- quantifying quantum entanglement;
- quantum walks and their utilization for modeling quantum networks;
- quantum automata and algebraic groups;
- logic and algebraic structures from quantum computation;
- quantum programming languages.
