Topological Quantum Computing, September 12 – 16, 2011

We are pleased to announce the upcoming workshop, Quantum: Topology, Information, Computation, to be held at Stony Brook University from September 12 through September 16, 2011. Quantum has become ubiquitous in topology, information, and computation. The central theme of the workshop evolves around mathematical and scientific challenges in the topological approach to building a large-scale […]

Neuromorphic Networks

Inteviewer Luca Mazzucato An interview with Konstantin Likharev. He joined the Stony Brook Physics Department in 1991, after a long and successful career at Moscow State University. He is a pioneer in nano-electronics and the developer of CrossNets, a new kind of chip that could change the way we think about computers. In recent years, […]
