Quantum Information and Control

The possibility of technologies such as quantum computers that would process information according to the rules of quantum mechanics has seen an explosion of research that essentially parallels the development of theoretical engineering disciplines such as information, control and systems theory. I will give a very selected overview of these developments and, looking at the particular instance of feedback control, describe how the quantum mechanical version of LQG optimal control differs from its classical counterpart.

Biographical Sketch:
Andrew Doherty has been a Principal Research Fellow in the School of Physical Sciences at the University of Queensland since November 2003. Associate Professor Doherty was born in Christchurch, New Zealand and obtained a Bachelor of Science with First Class Honours in Physics from the University of Canterbury in May 1996. He obtained his Ph.D in Physics from The University of Auckland in May 2000. After completing his Ph.D he worked as a postdoctoral scholar at the California Institute of Technology. His current research interests are in cavity quantum electrodynamics, quantum feedback control, quantum limits to precision measurements and quantum information particularly mixed state entanglement.
