Dear All
Another treat on Friday November 20th at 2pm
Provisional Venue, Room A2002, Main Building.
Professor Richard Gill ( Mathematical Institute, Leiden University ) will give a talk entitled:
I will try to explain what quantum statistics is - quantum statistics in the sense of "statistical modelling and inference for quantum physics experiments" - by discussing some recent developments in the theory of "optimal state reconstruction". In particular, I will discuss quantum Fisher information, quantum Cramér-Rao bounds, quantum asymptotic optimality for the case when the experimenter can choose whatever measurement he likes to do, in order to learn the state of N independent "copies" of an arbitrary finite dimensional quantum system, e.g., a two level system. This is the quantum version of the problem of statistical inference for p based on observation of N iid Bernouilli variables. I will touch on the relevance of the theory for real world experiments.
Prior knowledge of quantum physics (or for that matter, of physics in general) would likely be a disadvantage.
