Quantum Gravity and Quantum Computation

17th December 2004

Author: Seth Lloyd (MIT)

Abstract

This talk proposes a theory of quantum gravity and elementary particle physics based on quantum computation. In this theory, fundamental processes are described in terms of quantum information processing: the structure of space-time and of quantum fields are constructs, derived from the underlying quantum computation.
