## Seminar

### Quantum information, the Jones polynomial and the Fibonacci model

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute

#### Abstract

An (abstract) quantum computer is a unitary transformation U defined on a complex vector space coupled with the preparation of states |psi> for U to act upon and a probabilistic range of measurements>/p> There are many related avenues to the basic direction of this talk and we hope to touch on some of them: quantum computation of the Jones polynomial, the quantum Hall effect (where one expects to find physical analogs of the Fibonacci anyons), Khovanov homology, quantum knots, topological entanglement and quantum entanglement.
