Schools of Mathematics and Physics: EPSRC Project Studentship in Mathematics/Physics underpinning Quantum Computing: investigating the algebraic, geometrical and physical underpinnings of Quantum Computation
Aims of the project
This is an EPSRC funded project with the aim of investigating the algebraic, geometrical and physical underpinnings of Quantum Computation. The eventual aim is to facilitate the development of viable quantum computers, but the objective is to develop general mathematical modelling frameworks for the various components. This is expected to involve areas such as geometrical representation theory, topological systems (such as topological insulators), category theory and quantum geometry.

There are two PhD studentships available for immediate start.
The Supervisory Team will be Professor Paul Martin (Algebra research group in Dept of Pure Maths), Professor Frank Nijhoff (Integrable Systems & Mathematical Physics research group in Dept of Applied Maths) with Dr Jiannis Pachos and Prof Timothy Spiller in School of Physics and Astronomy.
UK and EU applicants will be eligible for a full award paying tuition fees and maintenance.
International (non-UK/EU) applicants will be eligible for full maintenance but fees will be paid only at the UK/EU standard rate (UK/EU rate £3,828 and International rate £14,400 for Session 2012-2013) so applicants will be required to fund the difference.
