We propose a family of exactly solvable toy models for the AdS/CFT correspondence based on a novel construction of quantum error-correcting codes with a tensor network structure. Our building block is a special type of tensor with maximal entangle-ment along any bipartition, which gives rise to an isometry from the bulk Hilbert space to the boundary Hilbert(More)
GPS (global positioning satellite system to determine one's position on earth) units have become inexpensive and compact. The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness of a GPS enhanced computer street map navigator to improve the ability of EMS drivers in an urban setting to locate their destination and shorten response times. For part I,(More)
Many-body entangled quantum states studied in condensed matter physics can be primary resources for quantum information, allowing any quantum computation to be realized using measurements alone, on the state. Such a universal state would be remarkably valuable, if only it were thermodynamically stable and experimentally accessible, by virtue of being the(More)
Many-body entangled systems, in particular topologically ordered spin systems proposed as resources for quantum information processing tasks, often involve highly nonlocal interaction terms. While one may approximate such systems through two-body interactions perturbatively, these approaches have a number of drawbacks in practice. In this Letter, we propose(More)
The emerging closeness between correlated spin systems and error-correcting codes enables us to use coding theoretical techniques to study physical properties of many-body spin systems. This thesis illustrates the use of classical and quantum coding theory in classifying quantum phases arising in many-body spin systems via a systematic study of stabilizer(More)
Overview This research group seeks to understand and develop the experimental and theoretical potential for information processing and communications using the laws of quantum physics. Two fundamental questions motivate our work: (1) How can a large-scale, reliable quantum computer be realized? (2) What new metrology applications, coding primitives, and(More)
