Message passing for quantum models (SMILS)

Description and objectives:

In this project we want to develop message passing techniques for simple quantum spin models on graphs.

The idea is to go in two directions: functional integral representations and/or discrete phase space representations.

We are particularly interested in investigating topological phases with such methods.


Having followed one or preferably both quantum information and computation classes offered in 3rd year.
