Quantum Computing for High-Energy Physics

OC218 (IPPP)



Alan Barr (University of Oxford), Michael Spannowsky (IPPP, Durham University)

Over the last several years proposals have been developing for employing quantum computational techniques both to perform calculations of high-energy processes, and to perform tests of the foundations of quantum mechanics at colliders.

This workshop will bring together a small group of academics to explore the application of state-of-the-art quantum techniques to problems in particle physics.

The workshop will run from mid-morning on Tuesday 19th September to mid-afternoon on Wednesday 20th September.
