"Quantum computing and topological codes using continuous variables"

ABSTRACT:
Continuousvariable (CV) approaches to quantum computing have certain advantages over standard qubitbased approaches. The most striking of these is the ability to make extremely large resource states for measurementbased quantum computing using small optical setups. Furthermore, local measurements on one of these states will transform it into a CV version of a topological quantum code, which has potential applications in condensedmatter theory, anonymous broadcasting, and quantum error correction. My talk will discuss the latest theoretical and experimental developments in this research area.
