Upcoming Events

June 18th-19th, 2019

IMPRS-QST block seminar course by Giuseppe Carleo from the Flat Iron Institute

Machine Learning Techniques for Many-Body quantum systems: theory and experiments

Time: June 18th-19th, 2019
Location: seminar room E0.11, MPA Garching

Description:
In these lectures I will cover the main machine learning techniques adopted to study interacting quantum systems. I will first introduce the concept of neural-network quantum states, a representation of the many-body wave-function based on artificial neural networks. Then, I will show how these representations can be used in a variety of applications. Examples will be given for data-driven, experimental analysis in the context of quantum state tomography. I will also show how these states can be used in variational applications to theoretically study the physical properties of interacting many-body quantum systems both at equilibrium and out-of-equilibrium. The lectures will be followed by hands-on sessions, based on the open-source software NetKet.

There will be both lectures and hands-on tutorials!

Past Events

December 5th, 2018

Special lecture by
Prof. Assa Auerbach, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology

The 2nd Law: History and Fiction    

Time: Wednesday, December 5th, 4:30 pm
Location: MPQ lecture hall, B 0.32

The talk discussed the history of Maxwell’s Demon, the Second Law of Thermodynamics, and its connection to Information Theory. It showed how these concepts can be explained to non-physicists in a comic book of an adventure story called “Max the Demon vs Entropy of Doom’’

December 3rd - 4th, 2018

Recent Advances in Quantum Science and Technology
Joint Workshop of IMPRS-QST, CoQuS and the Innsbruck Physics Research Center  

A joint workshop with the primary goal of establishing connections between the students from the three institutions and stimulate discussions among them. The program included talks by two PIs of each institution: Immanuel Bloch and Matthias Punk from IMPRS-QST, Johannes Fink and Jörg Schmiedmayer from CoQus and Lauriane Chomaz and Wolfgang Lechner from Innsbruck. Moreover, Klaus Sengstock from the University of Hamburg also gave a presentation on his exciting research!

Title: The magic of Feyman's QED
Time: Thursday, November 8th, 4 pm
Location: MPQ lecture hall B 0.32

For a long time, and even after the Feynman diagrams and rules were publicly known, Feynman's approach to quantum electrodynamics remained largely private. For this reason, its stupendous efficiency sounded like magic to most of his contemporaries. The purpose of this essay is to bring out the hidden contrivances of this magic.

Career Talk by Dr. Susanne Pielava, Google
From Theoretical Physics to Algorithms  

During their undergraduate and graduate studies, physicists acquire a broad set of transferable skills which make many career paths available, also outside of academia.

After a postdoc in condensed matter theory, Dr. Susanne Pielawa joined a start-up as an early employee, and developed algorithms for a 3D-model search engine. She is now a Software Engineer at Google Munich.
