MC 1: Graph Theory and Quantum Walks

Krystal Guo, Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing

Abstract: The study of quantum walks is a relatively new field with relations to Graph Isomorphism, quantum search algorithms and implementation of gate-based quantum algorithms. It is an area which has seen many successful applications of methods in linear algebra and graph theory, especially eigenvalue techniques in graphs. In this mini-course, we will cover basic definitions and properties of discrete and continuous time quantum walks on graphs. In the first lecture, we will talk about state transfer in graphs. In the second lecture, we will talk about the average mixing matrix which would be the analogue of a stationary distribution of a random walk. In the third, we will present the well-known Grover search algorithm as a quantum walk on a graph. In the last lecture, we will discuss many graph invariants given by quantum walks, some of which have inspired possible Graph Isomorphism algorithms. We will not assume any prior knowledge of quantum physics.


MC 2: Nonlinear techniques in matrix theory

Carlos Tomei, Pontifícia Universidade Católica, PUC-Rio, Brazil 

Tiago Pereira, Universidade de São Paulo, São Carlos, Brazil

Abstract: Some fundamental objects in Linear Algebra are hardly linear. In this short course, we present examples of the interplay between nonlinear techniques and aspects of spectral theory.  We apply differential equations, some Lie algebra reasoning, topological degree theory, some basic representation theory  to issues related to the (numerical or explicit) computation of eigenvalues, to inverse spectral problems and to the contextualizing of some familiar spectral properties.  Pre-requisites are minimal – one should be at ease with the standard material in undergraduate courses.
