PQI Members Sergey Frolov, David Pekker, Noa Marom, Michael Hatridge, Benjamin Hunt, and Hrvoje Petek featured on Pitt Website for their accomplisment on landing $4.8M award from National Science Foundation (NSF) for International Research and Education (PIRE) program.Sergey Frolov will be the Director of new PIRE. Hrvoje Petek, Michael Hatridge and David Pekker are other PQI co-PIs for this project. The duration of the program is 5 years.
What are the latest developments in quantum information science and computation?
What are the current challenges in algorithms, hardware, and technology transition to engineering applications?
NASA brought word leading scientist and industry leaders come together at Quantum Computing workshop to answer these questions and discuss future of the Quantum Computers.
An article by PQI member Edward Gerjuoy will be included in a book titled "Memories of Julian Schwinger" in a new edition of Schwinger's book Quantum Mechanics - Symbolism of Atomic Measurements (Springer, 2018), published for the centennial of Schwinger's birth. Schwinger, who shared the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physics with Richard Feynman and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga for the invention of quantum electrodynamics, was a classmate of Gerjuoy's at City College of New York in the 1930s. Gerjuoy noted that he had a better grade in classical mechanics than Schwinger did.
