# RIKEN/NT & Quantum Computing Seminar

## "Quantum Uncertainty and Quantum Computation"

#### Presented by Ivan Horvath, University of Kentucky

Thursday, September 6, 2018, 12:30 pm — Building 510, Room 2-160

I will discuss the uncertainty in quantum mechanics as a property reflecting the "quantity" (measure) on the set of possible probing outcomes. This is in contrast to the commonly used "spectral distance" (metric). An unexpected insight into the nature of quantum uncertainty (and that of measure) is obtained as a result. One of the motivations for considering measure uncertainty is that it is directly relevant for assessing the efficiency of quantum computation.
