The Thematic Einstein Semester “Mathematics for Quantum Technologies” aims to shed light on the mathematical aspects of the rapidly developing fields of quantum information processing, quantum cryptography, and quantum metrology. The related novel quantum technologies, which will vastly outperform their classical counterparts in certain tasks, rely to a significant extent on complex mathematical theory that closely links numerous areas of applied mathematics. During the semester it is intended to bring together young researchers and experienced scholars from mathematics, theoretical physics, engineering and related disciplines in a number of workshops, a summer school and further activities.


The CNO group at ZIB is involved in organizing this Thematic Einstein Semester. In particular, the AMPD meeting, as well as the workshops on Quantum Sensing with Ultra-Cold Gases and on Quantum Chaos and Non-Hermitian Physics in Optical Microcavities are organized by the CNO group.
