"Using Stochastic Integration in Phase Space. Part 1: Positive P for Quantum Optics"

We look at how the positive-P and truncated Wigner representations can be used to calculate quantum correlations in out of equilibrium open and closed quantum systems. This is the first of a series of introductory talks on phase space methods running over three weeks.

These talks will follow through the procedures and methods used, without going deeply into the formalism of phase space representations.

  • The first talk will cover the positive-P representation for a nonlinear chi-2 system
  • The second will introduce the truncated Wigner representation for a chi-3 nonlinear system, and show what it gets right and what it gets wrong
  • The topic of the third talk will include sampling different initial quantum states and reproducing probability distributions to relate to experiment

WHEN: Tuesday 5 December 2017
WHERE: Room 314, Science 3 Building
TIME: 11.00am - 12.00pm

All interested are welcome to attend
