Innovation Workshop Quantum Project

Title of project “Quantum Computing Simulation in Mathematica” Overview Participants will build functions to simulate quantum processes, quantum circuits and quantum algorithms using Mathematica.  No experience in Mathematica is required; no experience in quantum computing is required either.  Emphasis will be placed on using the numerical functions built into Mathematica, but some symbolic functions can also be added, depending on the interest of those participating. Example of a completed project A core library of Mathematica functions that enables users to define a state space of qubits (or dits in general) apply unitary gates by indexing these dits apply functions such as the partial trace which takes indices to be traced[…]

Recent advances in magnetism: from Skyrmions to phase recognition with machine learning

Dmitry Yudin Researcher, ITMO University (Saint-Petersburg, Russia) 29 Aug 2018, 14:00-15:00 SkolTech, TPOC-4, Nobel str. 1, Red Building, 3rd floor, Room 351 Special Seminar Guest: Grigory Kabatyansky In spite of being a mature field of research studying of magnetism and magnetic materials remains one of the most exciting area in condensed matter physics. Indeed, tremendous progress in technological development over the last decades is mainly held by achievements in spintronics and related fields, stemming from pioneering works on giant and tunnel magnetoresistance and spin-transfer torque. In this talk, we discuss a general framework which allows a direct and self-contained evaluation of spin torques within microscopic theory. We further apply our findings to[…]

Postdoctoral Fellowships – Skoltech (Modern Quantum Theory)

Deep Quantum Labs is in the ongoing process of a expansion planned over the next several years as we continue to establish resident based international leadership in several core areas of theory related to quantum physics, the physics of information and with some specific focus on (i) simulation, (ii) quantum enhanced machine learning and (iii) the simulation of quantum systems using classical computers. We are seeking Research Scientist(s) to join our lab (Level I, II or III depending on experience) with some particular focus in this call on young applicants just finishing their PhD’s.  We offer internationally competitive compensation, including a housing allowance (international applicants), medical insurance and a sign-on[…]

Administrative Support Staff – two positions 

Administrative Support Staff – two positions  Skoltech’s Deep Quantum Labs is seeking talented administrators (x2) to optimize management procedures, increase management capacity and to preform some translations from English into Russian.   Successful candidates would be extremely organized and ready to join an extremely focused and disciplined team.  They will work closely with the team-PI to augment management capacity: to fine-tune, to organize and to oversee our internal procedures and processes, such as our calendar, our purchasing requests, and our compliance with various entities and our reporting. Ideal candidates would be smart and adaptable, able to type and also be willing to learn new computer programs (such as media Wiki and advanced[…]

Scientific Software Developer (HPC and parallel computing) – two positions 

Scientific Software Developer (HPC and parallel computing) – two positions  Skoltech’s Deep Quantum Labs is seeking two highly-talented and fast thinking developers (level depends on experience) to utilize our new supercomputing facility.  This facility is maintained and operated by CDISE (Skoltech) and opens the door to large-scale internationally competitive simulations of physical systems (500000+ NVidia – Volta – GPU cores and 2000 CPU cores). Ideal candidates should have some experience in scientific programming and some experience with high-performance parallel computing (for example OpenMP and MPI libraries – better Cuda, OpenCL and OpenACC); candidates would have mastered the Linux platform; they would be highly familiar with leading contemporary programming languages such as[…]

Entanglement in quantum spin chains

Vladimir Korepin, Professor, C. N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics, Stony Brook University of Sciences 02 August 2018, 15:00-16:00 SkolTech, TPOC-4, Nobel str. 2, Blue Building, 4th floor, Room 407   ABSTRACT. Spin chains are models of realistic quantum devices. They can be realized in optical lattices and appear in un-isotropic crystalline structures in solid state. History of quantum entanglement and spin chains will be explained. The entanglement measures the level of quantum fluctuations. Different spin chains will be reviewed. The chains with highest level of fluctuations will be singled out. Short BIO. Vladimir Korepin is a theoretical and mathematical physicist. He did his undergraduate in Leningrad State University on Mathematical Physics,[…]

Unusual properties of quantum walks

Alexander Rivosh, Researcher, the Center for Quantum Computer Science, University of Latvia 24 July 2018, 15:00-16:30 SkolTech, TPOC-4, Nobel str. 1, Red Building, 3rd floor, Room 351   ABSTRACT. Quantum walks proved to be a useful tool for the design of quantum algorithms. Local search, element distinctness, NAND formula evaluation – that is only a few examples for problems where quantum walk based algorithms exist. We consider quantum walk as an algorithmic tool to perform a search on different graphs. We have to take into account an existence of the whole class of exceptional configurations when we use a quantum walk for search applications. Quantum walk based search algorithms fail to[…]

Quantum Crash Course at Rusky Island (University 2035)

Modern Quantum Computing: enhanced optimization, simulation and machine learning Course Location: Rusky Island – University 20.35 Course Dates: 17-19 July 2018. Teaching Team Jacob Biamonte (lead) Tim Tlyachev Vito Leli Course Content Visionary Lecture. Jacob Biamonte outlines the last 20 years of quantum mechanics, the second quantum revolution and notes that while progress was made we are far from tackling some foundational questions.  Despite this lack of understanding, this actually does not impede the use of quantum mechanics as a computational resource.  18 July 2018, 21:00-23:00, building A. Lecture 1. Introduction to the idea of using the low-energy state of a physical system as a computational resource.  Methods to program and embed problems[…]
