"Optical continuous-variable cluster states"

Nicolas Menicucci , Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics
[Host: Olivier Pfister]
I will describe the theoretical underpinnings of one-way quantum computation using continuous-variable systems, as well as the pros and cons of several different methods of experimental implementation using lasers. Issues related to error correction and fault tolerance -- many of which remain open problems -- will also be discussed.
