Adiabatic Paper Dance

Yes, it’s a slow dance:

Through the hourglass I saw you, in time you slipped away
When the mirror crashed I called you, and turned to hear you say
If only for today I am adiabatic

Take my pulsed gates away

    This paper is crazy-talk.

    It’s a slow dance, but one that starts 35 seconds after a new day’s submissions start on the arxiv, eh? Actually I’ve been burned by that before (and possibly just now as well), somehow getting sucked in to the previous day’s listings.

    None of that matters any more with scirate though!

    Steve’s got mad timing skillz.

    I wonder what that paper listing would have looked like on my iPod Touch?

    It seems to me that it’s possible to create an encoded gate in the same way. If the operators in the initial and final Hamiltonians are replaced by the encoded operators of some quantum code and the stabilizers of the code are also added, such as in quant-ph/0512170 or 0806.2160, then the gate will be protected against some number of single-qubit errors. Does this make sense? I’m not sure how useful this would be, since the Hamiltonian wouldn’t be 2-local anymore, but self-correcting adiabatic gate teleportation has a nice ring to it.

    I finished reading the paper. It was good, but it didn’t take my breath away.

    Well, the paper looks pretty good on my iPod Touch after all.

    By the way, have you thought about adding a search by arxiv reference number feature? Or search by multiple authors?

    ooo good style Dance is a dance perspective, meaning that a real life and most especially good to say that health activities are dancing, I mean everybody hand in hand at the dance I dance for my life get a healthy life
