THE
FIELDS INSTITUTE FOR RESEARCH IN MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES
20th
ANNIVERSARY
YEAR

Workshop
on Mathematical Methods of
Quantum Tomography
February 1922, 2013
Fields Institute, 222 College St.,Toronto
Organizers:
Hubert de Guise (Lakehead)
BertholdGeorg Englert (National University of Singapore)
Zdenek Hradil (Palacky University)
Gerd Leuchs (Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light)
Luis L. SanchezSoto (Complutense
University
Madrid)






The objective in quantum tomography is to reconstruct
the density matrix of a quantum state using “probes”
(theoretical or experimental). The density matrix is a generalization
of the quantum state vector that evolves following the Schrödinger
equation of quantum mechanics. The solution to problems in this
field are also of interest beyond the immediate quantum tomographic
community as they are essential for a better understanding of
quantum information processes and the prospective construction
of a quantum computer. The objective of the Workshop is to gather
experts and students working in the development and applications
of mathematical tools related to quantum tomography and related
problems.
Overview
We hope to foster new insights and different perspectives through
this Workshop where researchers from a variety of backgrounds and expertise
can exchange ideas in the informal atmosphere of a workshop. In line
with this objective, the workshop will schedule a few morning talks
and a significant portion of the program will be reserved for discussion
sessions.

Posters
Participants wishing to present a poster will be
able to indicate so at the time of registration. Some students
who present a poster may be invited to submit their results
for peer reviewed publication in the Canadian
Journal of Physics.

Some of the young participants supported by the
Julian Schwinger Foundation
