Illinois mathematics faculty members, in partnership with Purdue faculty, successfully hosted the QLA Meets QIT II workshop in Chicago last month. This event was the second rendition of a workshop which first ran in 2019 at Purdue University. The goal of the workshop is to bridge the fields of quantitative linear algebra, and quantum information theory. This year’s focus was on current trends in quantum information theory, with a focus on quantum channels and decoherence, Hamiltonian complexity, and quantum error correction. There was a mix of early career researchers and senior faculty which led to many great discussions throughout the duration of the workshop. Organizers hope that such discussions will lead to further collaboration and projects, and they look forward to the third rendition of QLA Meets QIT in 2024.
