Quantum Godwin's Law

  title={Quantum Godwin's Law},
  author={Michalis Skotiniotis and Andreas J. Winter},
Godwin's law, i.e. the empirical observation that as an online discussion grows in time, the probability of a comparison with Nazis or Hitler quickly approaches unity, is one of the best-documented facts of the internet. Anticipating the quantum internet, here we show under reasonable model assumptions a polynomial quantum speedup of Godwin's law. Concretely, in quantum discussions, Hitler will be mentioned on average quadratically earlier, and we conjecture that under specific network…

Two novel lower bounds on the "distillable common randomness" of Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger (GHZ) states can be asymptotically distilled from any given pure state under LOCC are obtained.
Science Spoofs, Physics Pranks and Astronomical Antics
The physical sciences are usually taken to be very earnest pursuits by those who work in them. However, most professional physicists and astronomers would also happily agree with the t-shirt mantra
Pranks and Astronomical Antics
Some scientists take themselves and their work very seriously. However, there are plenty of cases of humour being combined with science. Here I review some examples from the broad fields of physics


Quantum computing and the entanglement frontier
This study is motivated by the observation (widely believed but unproven) that classical systems cannot simulate highly entangled quantum systems efficiently, and it hopes to hasten the day when well controlled quantum systems can perform tasks surpassing what can be done in the classical world.
The Physics of God and the Quantum Gravity Theory of Everything
Analysis is given of the Omega Point cosmology, an extensively peer-reviewed proof (i.e., mathematical theorem) published in leading physics journals by professor of physics and mathematics Frank J.
Quantum internet: A vision for the road ahead
What it will take to achieve this so-called quantum internet is reviewed and different stages of development that each correspond to increasingly powerful applications are defined, including a full-blown quantum internet with functional quantum computers as nodes connected through quantum communication channels.

It is shown that any protocol with p⊂0 + p ⊂1 = 1 – ∈ must have N tending to infinity as ∈ tends to 0, and it is implied that N must be large if the probability of interaction is to be close to zero.
Multiparty entanglement in graph states
This work characterize and quantify the genuine multiparticle entanglement of such graph states in terms of the Schmidt measure, to which it provides upper and lower bounds in graph theoretical terms.
SimulaQron - A simulator for developing quantum internet software
A simulator for a quantum internet with the specific goal to support software development is introduced, which features a modular design that performs a distributed simulation based on any existing simulation of a quantum computer capable of integrating with Python.
Topology adaption for the quantum Internet
The problem of entanglement assignment in a quantum repeater network is studied, its computational complexity is proved, and an optimization procedure is shown to provide an efficient shortest path selection for the demands of all users of the network.
Opportunistic Entanglement Distribution for the Quantum Internet
The method of opportunistic entanglement distributing with respect to the actual statuses of the local quantum memories of the node pairs provides an easily-applicable, moderate-complexity solution for high-fidelityEntanglement distribution in experimental quantum Internet scenarios.
Theory of Noise-Scaled Stability Bounds and Entanglement Rate Maximization in the Quantum Internet
This work defines the term of entanglement swapping set that models the status of quantum memory of a quantum repeater with the stored density matrices and determines the optimal entangler swapping method that maximizes theEntanglement rate of the quantum repeaters at the different entanglements swapping sets as function of the noise of the local memory and local operations.
