This Friday, Pedro Correia, student at the qig@CBPF, will defend his master dissertation.

The dissertation title is “Entanglement in Coarse-grained Systems”, and it contains results on: i) coarse-grained entanglement dynamics in spin-chains, and ii) coarse-grained entanglement in micro-macro systems, with an application to the measurement problem. 165 more words

#### The Race to Quantum Technologies and Quantum Computers (Useful Links)

One of my main research directions in the last decade is quantum information theory and quantum computers. (See this post and this one.) It is therefore a pleasure to report and give many links on the massive efforts carried out these days in these directions and the great enthusiasm and hope these efforts carry. 2,903 more words
