World of Physics Lecture
Start Date: 3/27/2015Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Date: 3/27/2015

Event Description:

Speaker: Dmitri Averin, Professor, Department of Physics and Astronomy and member of the Condensed Matter Theory Group

Lecture Title: Computation-Inspired Physics: From Maxwell Demon to Relativistic Quantum Mechanics

Advanced models of computation: reversible, and its descendant, quantum computation, have served as motivation for several fundamental discoveries in physics, a prime example being the resolution of the Maxwell's demon paradox based on the Landauer principle. The talk will provide a basic description of the established physics and more recent developments in this area using the superconducting structures as the main example.
