It measures how much uncertainty there is in the state of a physical system. Research areas in CMI range widely across the field of `data science' including statistics and probability; applied, pure and computational analysis; and the theory and modelling of complex, dynamical and physical systems. 14) every Monday 13:00 - 15:00. 2 Future directions 12 1. 5 ECTS) Organized by André Henriques, by Gleb Arutyunov, and by Jules Lamers* Description In this interdisciplinary seminar we will study certain topics in algebra and representation theory that have their origin in mathematical physics. Games can facilitate positive emotions through connection and mastery. For my undergraduate degree, I studied Physics at Murray Edwards College, Cambridge, followed by Part III Mathematics. ' Nicolas Gisin, Université de Genève 'Part quantum mechanics textbook, part original research contribution, this book is a fascinating, audacious effort to 'rebuild quantum mechanics from the ground up', presenting it as the logical consequence of simple information-theoretic postulates. 1 Quantum Hardware: Goals and.
