IGL Research Opportunities for Undergraduates

Alexi Taylor Block Gorman, Joseph Rogge, & Tatum Schmidt   [email] (UIUC Math)

Abstract: Wondered what it means to do research in mathematics? Come learn about the mathematical research opportunities that the Illinois Geometry Lab (IGL) provides for undergraduate students. The research students do in the IGL is designed to be understood--and performed--by undergraduate participants, so all are welcome! The topics for these projects range from very applied mathematics to highly theoretical. We will explain the IGL's application process, and offer some tips on how to write a successful application. This information session will feature a couple short presentations by current undergraduate IGL participants, and the opportunity to ask these students about their experiences with the IGL.

Zero Error communication and quantum Lovasz function

Chloe Kim (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

Abstract: We will review the result of the paper "zero-error communication via quantum channels, non-commutative graphs and a quantum Lovasz function" by Duan, Severini, and Winter. We will first briefly review zero error capacity for classical communication, and introduce the quantum analogue of it.
