This Tutorial will introduce the mathematical framework for describing systems of identical particles, and explain the notion of indistinguishability. We will then focus our attention on dynamical systems of free particles and formally introduce the concept of many-particle interference. Its impact on many-particle transition probabilities is computationally challenging to evaluate, and it becomes rapidly intractable for systems with large numbers of identical particles. Hence, this Tutorial… Expand

Validating multi-photon quantum interference with finite data
This work considers the Bayesian hypothesis testing and the statistical benchmark as most favorable protocols for small- and large-scale applications, respectively, and numerically investigates their operation with finite sample size, extending previous tests to larger dimensions, and against two adversarial algorithms for classical simulation.

Characterizing four-body indistinguishability via symmetries
We show how to characterize the indistinguishability of up to four identical, bosonic or fermionic particles, which are rendered partially distinguishable through their internal degrees of freedomExpand
Efficient verification of Boson Sampling
An efficient protocol is derived for verifying with single-mode Gaussian measurements the output states of a large class of continuous variable quantum circuits demonstrating quantum speedup, including Boson Sampling experiments, with and without i.i.d. assumption, thus enabling a convincing demonstration of quantum speed up with photonic computing.

Non-Gaussian Quantum States and Where to Find Them
Gaussian states have played on important role in the physics of continuous-variable quantum systems. They are appealing for the experimental ease with which they can be produced, and for theirExpand

Local Versus Global Two-Photon Interference in Quantum Networks.
By controlling the phases of delocalized single photons, this experiment manipulates the global mode structure, resulting in distinct two-photon interference phenomena for time-bin resolved (local) and time-bucket (global) coincidence detection. Expand


Interference of identical particles from entanglement to boson-sampling
Progress in the reliable preparation, coherent propagation and efficient detection of many-body states has recently brought collective quantum phenomena of many identical particles into theExpand

Suppression laws for multiparticle interference in Sylvester interferometers
Quantum interference of correlated particles is a fundamental quantum phenomenon which carries signatures of the statistics properties of the particles, such as bunching or anti-bunching. In presenceExpand
Nonmonotonic quantum-to-classical transition in multiparticle interference
It is demonstrated experimentally and theoretically that such monotonicity of the quantum-to-classical transition is the exception rather than the rule whenever more than two particles interfere. Expand
Distinguishability and Many-Particle Interference.
It is shown that the distinguishability between pairs of photons is not sufficient to fully describe the photons' behavior in a scattering process, but that a collective phase, the triad phase, plays a role. Expand

Many-particle interference beyond many-boson and many-fermion statistics
Identical particles exhibit correlations even in the absence of inter-particle interaction, due to the exchange (anti)symmetry of the many- particle wavefunction. Two fermions obey the PauliExpand
