In this context we discover that the sum of the negative entries of the discrete Wigner representation of a state is a measure of its usefulness for quantum computation. We believe that the techniques we develop here will be widely applicable in quantum theory, particularly in the context of resource theories.

Victor’s thesis makes an in-depth study of this new model, uncovering sampling interpretations and identifying canonical estimators. Ross Thomas J.

Abstract This thesis deals with the question of what resources are necessary and sufficient for quantum computational speedup. This connection allows us to establish a number of important results related to magic state computation, an important model for fault tolerant quantum computation using stabilizer operations supplemented by the ability to prepare noisy non-stabilizer ancilla states.

Metadata Show full tjesis record. Moreover, by casting magic state computation as resource theory we are able to quantify how useful ancilla resource states are for quantum computation, which allows us to give bounds on the required resources.

This thesis is concerned with advancing the confrontation between relativistic quantum information RQI and experiment. Victor’s research on sparse graph models, graph limits, and estimation has made foundational contributions to network data analysis and more generally, the problem of modeling relational data.

Victor is from Waterloo, Ontario. This gives a precise, quantitative meaning to the negativity of a quasi-probability representation, thereby resolving the 80 year debate as to whether this quantity is a meaningful indicator of quantum behaviour.
