Lecture notes on the Mahadev verification protocol
As announced earlier I am currently teaching a course on “interactive proofs with quantum devices” in Paris. The course is proceeding apace, even though the recent lockdown order in France means that we had to abandon our beautiful auditorium at … Continue reading

Randomness and interaction? Entanglement ups the game!
[05/25/19 Update: Kevin Hartnett has a nice article at Quanta explaining Natarajan & Wright’s result in slightly more layman terms than I’d be able to…see here: Computer Scientists Expand the Frontier of Verifiable Knowledge] The study of entanglement through the … Continue reading
The cryptographic leash
This post is meant as a companion to an introductory post I wrote on the blog of Caltech’s IQIM (Institute for Quantum Information and Matter), of which I am a member. The post describes a “summer cluster” on quantum computation … Continue reading

UCSD Spring school on Quantum Computation
A couple months from now Dorit Aharonov, David Gosset and myself will be giving a short 3.5day “Spring School” that is meant to be an introduction to recent topics in quantum computing, directed at young researchers in theoretical computer science at large. The school is … Continue reading
A beginner’s guide to PC chairing
I recently had the privilege to serve as program committee (PC) chair for the yearly conference on quantum cryptography, QCRYPT’17 (note: for obvious publicrelations reasons all names of conferences, PC members and authors in this post have been replaced by entirely fictional aliases). Although … Continue reading
Pauli braiding
[7/9/17 Update: Following a suggestion by Oded Regev I upgraded Section 1 from “probabilistic functions” to “matrixvalued functions”. This hopefully makes it a more useful, and interesting, midpoint between the classical analysis of BLR and the nonabelian extension discussed afterwards. … Continue reading
