There are various groups in Brazil working with quantum information and quantum computation. Different places have different expertise, what makes the environment propitious for collaborations and a factory of great ideas! 97 more words

Paulo H. S. Ribeiro, known to everyone as Paulão, is one of the most important figures for the quantum information community in Brazil. Paulão is the head (the arm, the leg, the heart!) of the… 850 more words

Here at qig@CBPF we combine theoretical research with exquisite NMR experiments. This reflects also on our guests. For the next ten days or so we have the visit of Prof. 178 more words

Thermodynamics is the branch of physics that uses *macroscopic* variables, such as temperature, internal energy, and pressure, to describe general properties of systems, without paying attention to peculiar properties of particular materials. 218 more words

Update(06.08.14): Below are the slides from Rosario’s talk. He presented many results and posed some nice questions. Thanks Rosario!
