Applied Quantum Measurement (AQM07) |
Measurement is
fundamental in quantum mechanics, playing a role both critical and
controversial. The founders of quantum theory recognized the striking
differences between its role in quantum and classical physics. Rapid advances
in experimental capability have only sharpened these differences. Recent
theoretical developments have provided entirely new perspectives -- e.g., in
quantum computation, measurements are not merely a way to extract information,
but a powerful tool for implementing a computation. The Applied
Quantum Measurement workshop will establish links between a wide range of
recent developments in the theory and practice of quantum measurement. We aim
to gather a select group of students, post-docs, and senior researchers in a
stimulating environment. Participants will include both theorists
and experimentalists, working on quantum information, quantum computation,
quantum gravity, quantum foundations, and related fields. Interspersed
within focused collaborative discussions, a series of keynote, tutorial, and
contributed talks will survey recent developments and promising speculations
in: 1. Quantum inference and foundations of
statistics A significant
part of the workshop will be devoted to scientific interaction among the
participants, both formal (discussions and round tables) and informal (long coffee
breaks). In order to optimize the working conditions and encourage discussion,
we would like to limit the workshop to approximately 40 participants. [Back] |
