Quantum Marginals


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

14th October 2013 to 18th October 2013

Organisers: Matthias Christandl (ETH Zurich), Michael Walter (ETH Zurich) and Andreas Winter (Bristol)

Workshop Theme

Understanding the quantum marginals, or reduced density matrices (RDMs), of multipartite quantum states is a fundamental theme in quantum information theory. Recent work has built on tools from convex analysis and random matrix theory as well as on the link to algebraic and symplectic geometry and asymptotic representation theory. In this workshop, we aim to bring together mathematicians, physicists and computer scientists to discuss recent developments, communicate open problems as well as to identify new directions for the future study of quantum marginals:

  • The quantum marginal problem/N-representability problem in quantum chemistry and mathematical physics
  • The study of entropies and entropy inequalities, entanglement and correlations of multipartite quantum states in quantum information theory
  • Mathematical aspects: geometry, representation theory and complexity theory
