Information processing using a single dynamical node as complex system

- L. Appeltant, M. Soriano, +6 authors I. Fischer
- Medicine, Biology
- Nature communications
- 13 September 2011

Novel methods for information processing are highly desired in our information-driven society. Inspired by the brain's ability to process information, the recently introduced paradigm known as… Expand

Random numbers certified by Bell’s theorem

- S. Pironio, A. Acín, +8 authors C. Monroe
- Physics, Computer Science
- Nature
- 18 November 2009

Randomness is a fundamental feature of nature and a valuable resource for applications ranging from cryptography and gambling to numerical simulation of physical and biological systems. Random… Expand

Device-independent quantum key distribution secure against collective attacks

- S. Pironio, A. Acín, N. Brunner, N. Gisin, S. Massar, V. Scarani
- Physics
- 25 March 2009

Device-independent quantum key distribution (DIQKD) represents a relaxation of the security assumptions made in usual quantum key distribution (QKD). As in usual QKD, the security of DIQKD follows… Expand

Device-independent security of quantum cryptography against collective attacks.

- A. Acín, N. Brunner, N. Gisin, S. Massar, S. Pironio, V. Scarani
- Medicine, Physics
- Physical review letters
- 15 February 2007

We present the optimal collective attack on a quantum key distribution protocol in the "device-independent" security scenario, where no assumptions are made about the way the quantum key distribution… Expand

Optimality of the genetic code with respect to protein stability and amino-acid frequencies

BackgroundThe genetic code is known to be efficient in limiting the effect of mistranslation errors. A misread codon often codes for the same amino acid or one with similar biochemical properties, so… Expand

Nonlocal correlations as an information-theoretic resource

- J. Barrett, N. Linden, S. Massar, S. Pironio, S. Popescu, D. Roberts
- Physics
- 16 April 2004

It is well known that measurements performed on spatially separated entangled quantum systems can give rise to correlations that are nonlocal, in the sense that a Bell inequality is violated. They… Expand

Information Processing Capacity of Dynamical Systems

- J. Dambre, D. Verstraeten, B. Schrauwen, S. Massar
- Computer Science, Medicine
- Scientific reports
- 19 July 2012

Many dynamical systems, both natural and artificial, are stimulated by time dependent external signals, somehow processing the information contained therein. We demonstrate how to quantify the… Expand

Bell inequalities for arbitrarily high-dimensional systems.

- D. Collins, N. Gisin, N. Linden, S. Massar, S. Popescu
- Medicine, Physics
- Physical review letters
- 5 June 2001

We develop a novel approach to Bell inequalities based on a constraint that the correlations exhibited by local variable theories must satisfy. This is used to construct a family of Bell inequalities… Expand

Optoelectronic Reservoir Computing

- Y. Paquot, F. Duport, +4 authors S. Massar
- Computer Science, Physics
- Scientific reports
- 30 November 2011

Reservoir computing is a recently introduced, highly efficient bio-inspired approach for processing time dependent data. The basic scheme of reservoir computing consists of a non linear recurrent… Expand

Linear vs. semidefinite extended formulations: exponential separation and strong lower bounds

- Samuel Fiorini, S. Massar, Sebastian Pokutta, Hans Raj Tiwary, R. Wolf
- Mathematics, Computer Science
- STOC '12
- 3 November 2011

We solve a 20-year old problem posed by Yannakakis and prove that there exists no polynomial-size linear program (LP) whose associated polytope projects to the traveling salesman polytope, even if… Expand
