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

As you can imagine, due to extenuating circumstances, I won't be able to attend QIP in Zurich. Luckily my collaborator Steve Flammia will be there to give the talk on our recent work on adiabatic protocols (arXiv:0905.0901 and arXiv:0912.2098.) I know there will probably be a few bloggers…
QIP 2010 talks and associated papers if I could find them (amazing how almost all papers for this conference are available, for free, online at one location....also interesting how papers seem to cluster in the 10-12 months of the listings :) ) If anyone has corrections please leave a comment.…
Martin Plenio writes in with a link to a new site he created with Daniel Burgarth Videoabstracts (Joe got an email too):I am writing to you to bring to your attention some new tool that we (Daniel Burgarth and myself) have developed that has the aim of making science papers just a little more…
Okay, well not quite a music video(!), but my coauthor Steve Flammia has done a videoabstract for our paper (on quantiki at

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!

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
