This research line addresses the broad range of insights and questions that arise as soon as information is processed according to the rules of quantum mechanics. Reasoning based on quantum notions such as superposition and entanglement leads to applications in computer science, mathematics, logic and physics that do not always need an actual physical device. Some successful examples: an optimal algorithm for matrix multiplication, solving problems in operator algebras and functional analysis, and error-correcting codes. In the realm of physics, quantum information can be used in the study of non-locality, quantum thermodynamics, condensed matter systems, and even the structure of space-time itself. This research line also addresses quantum network and communication protocols, and distributed quantum computation. We study quantum-classical systems as well as architecture, interfaces and control.

“Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.”

QUSOFT COLLABORATIONS

/ Actual quantum projects

ELSA

A team led by professor Joris van Hoboken (UvA), who is affiliated with QuSoft, does research on the intersection of fundamental rights protection and the governance of platforms and internet-based services. These Ethical Legal and Social Aspects (ELSA) are very important to QuSofts research as well.

QSC

Developing new quantum software, by exploiting the counterintuitive effects of quantum mechanics, requires a unison of ideas from computer science, mathematics, and quantum physics. Therefore the Quantum Software Consortium (QuSoft, QuTech, Leiden University) is building a new research community in Quantum Information Science​.

Quantum Quest

Together with the University of Amsterdam, QuSoft has set up a web class for high school students. During the Quantum Quest students will learn the basics of quantum computing. At the end of the 5-week course they will understand what quantum bits and quantum algorithms are, and what they are good for.
