Jan Wehr : Entanglement percolation in quantum networks
Reliable information transmission between two sites of a network naturally leads to a percolation problem. When the information to be transmitted is quantum an exciting possibility arises: transform the network performing well chosen measurements to enhance the transmission probability. This idea, introduced recently by Acin, Cirac and Lewenstein is now systematically and successfully applied to a variety of two-dimensional networks, but open questions show that a complete theory is missing. The talk will involve some quanta, some network geometry, some percolation and, hopefully, some fun. No knowledge of quantum theory or percolation theory is assumed. Graduate students are encouraged to attend.
