Quantum Resources What Are They and How Much Are They Worth?

Jamie Sikora (Perimeter Institute, Waterloo, ON)

Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss several natural quantum problems and, in particular, how the problems change as the quantum resources change. I will show how to take an economics perspective to assign a shadow price to each quantum resource. To do this, I will use optimization theory and show that shadow prices are often given for free if you know where to look for them. This will be a Zoom meeting (https://illinois.zoom.us/j/653578028). Faculty host: Marius Junge.

Random walks on graphs and spectral radius: part 2

Anush Tserunyan (UIUC Math)

Abstract: We will continue discussing random walks on graphs and their spectral radius, computing that the spectral radius of $\mathbb{Z}^d$ is $1$, whereas it is less than $1$ for a $d$-regular tree with $d \ge 3$. We will then consider another parameter used in studying a given random walk, namely, the expectation of the number of visits to a fixed vertex. This controls the recurrence of the random walk and we will use it to deduce that the simple random walk on $\mathbb{Z}^d$ is recurrent if and only if $d \le 2$.

A dynamical obstruction for classification by actions of TSI Polish groups

Aristotelis Panagiotopoulos (Caltech Math)

Abstract: A big part of mathematical activity revolves around classification problems. However, not every classification problem has a satisfactory solution, and some classification problems are more complicated than others. Dynamical properties such as generic ergodicity and turbulence are crucial in the development of a rich complexity theory for classification problems. In this talk we will review some of the existing anti-classification techniques and we will introduce a new obstruction for classification by orbit equivalence relations of TSI Polish groups; a topological group is TSI if it admits a compatible two side invariant metric. We will then show that the Wreath product of any two non-compact subgroups of $S_{\infty}$ admits an action whose orbit equivalence relation is generically ergodic with respect to orbit equivalence relations of TSI group actions.
This is joint work with Shaun Allison.
