**Title: **Non-Commutativity and Discrete Physics

**Speaker:** Louis H. Kauffman, UIC

**Date**: 3-26-13

**Place**: AG 102

**Time**: 3:00pm

**Abstract**: This talk will show how discrete measurement leads to commutators and how discrete derivatives are naturally represented by commutators. We show how i, the square root of minus one, arises naturally as a time-sensitive observable for an elementary oscillator. In this sense the square root of minus one is a clock. This sheds new light on Wick rotation, which replaces t (temporal quantity) by it, the product of time with the square root of minus one.. The Wick rotation replaces numerical time with elementary temporal observation. We show how a number of aspects of physics look from this point of view including a generalization of the Feynman-Dyson derivation of electromagnetism in the context of non-commutative worlds. This generalization depends upon the definitions of derivatives via commutators and upon the way the non-commutative calculus mimics standard calculus.

*Dr. Louis H. Kauffman is a Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago and is the featured Langenhop lecturer.

**Speaker: **Eric Chitambar, SIU Physics

**Date**: Thursday, February 14, 2013

**Place**: Neckers 356

**Time**: 2:00PM

*Eric Chitambar, Assistant Professor of Physics Department:

Quantum information science is an interdisciplinary subject that studies how quantum systems can process information. One mysterious feature of quantum systems is their ability to exist in so-called entangled states, and entanglement has emerged as an important resource in quantum information. Thus, a very important question is how entanglement can be transformed from one form to another.

In this talk, I will provide a gentle introduction to the theory of entanglement transformations. The general question is how one multi-party quantum state can be converted to another when the different parties holding the state are separated by some great distance. I will describe how this purely physical question actually encodes some very important mathematical questions. For instance, deciding whether two polynomials are identical and computing the rank of a tensor can be both be shown as equivalent to an entanglement transformation question.
