Title: Parsimonious and robust realizations of unitary maps in the one-way model

Abstract

We present a new set of generators for unitary maps over C{sup 2} which differs from the traditional rotation-based generating set in that it uses a single-parameter family of unitaries J({alpha}). These generators are implementable in the one-way model [Raussendorf and Briegel, Phys. Rev. Lett. 86, 5188 (2001)] using only two qubits, and lead to both parsimonious and robust implementations of general unitaries. As an illustration, we give an implementation of the controlled-U family which uses only 14 qubits, and has a 2-colorable underlying entanglement graph (known to yield robust entangled states)

  • We propose an efficient approach for deterministically generating scalable cluster states with photons. This approach involves unitary transformations performed on atoms coupled to optical cavities. Its operation cost scales linearly with the number of qubits in the cluster state, and photon qubits are encoded such that single-qubit operations can be easily implemented by using linear optics. Robust optical one-way quantum computation can be performed since cluster states can be stored in atoms and then transferred to photons that can be easily operated and measured. Therefore, this proposal could help in performing robust large-scale optical one-way quantum computation.
  • The molecular mechanisms that transmit information from cell surface receptors to the nucleus are exceedingly complex; thus, much effort has been expended in developing computational models to understand these processes. A recent study on modeling the nuclear-cytoplasmic shuttling of Smad2-Smad4 complexes in response to transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) receptor activation has provided substantial insight into how this signaling network translates the degree of TGF-β receptor activation (input) into the amount of nuclear Smad2-Smad4 complexes (output). The study addressed this question by combining a simple, mechanistic model with targeted experiments, an approach that proved particularly powerful for exploring the fundamentalmore » properties of a complex signaling network. The mathematical model revealed that Smad nuclear-cytoplasmic dynamics enables a proportional, but time-delayed coupling between the input and the output. As a result, the output can faithfully track gradual changes in the input, while the rapid input fluctuations that constitute signaling noise are dampened out.« less
  • We review the current status of the construction of unitary representations of U-duality groups of supergravity theories in five, four and three dimensions. We focus mainly on the maximal N = 8 supergravity theories and on the N = 2 Maxwell-Einstein supergravity (MESGT) theories defined by Jordan algebras of degree three in five dimensions and their descendants in four and three dimensions. Entropies of the extremal black hole solutions of these theories in five and four dimensions are given by certain invariants of their U-duality groups. The five dimensional U-duality groups admit extensions to spectrum generating generalized conformal groups whichmore » are isomorphic to the U-duality groups of corresponding four dimensional theories. Similarly, the U-duality groups of four dimensional theories admit extensions to spectrum generating quasiconformal groups that are isomorphic to the corresponding U-duality groups in three dimensions. For example, the group E8(8) can be realized as a quasiconformal group in the 57 dimensional charge-entropy space of BPS black hole solutions of maximal N = 8 supergravity in four dimensions and leaves invariant 'lightlike separations' with respect to a quartic norm. Similarly E7(7) acts as a generalized conformal group in the 27 dimensional charge space of BPS black hole solutions in five dimensional N = 8 supergravity and leaves invariant 'lightlike separations' with respect to a cubic norm. For the exceptional N 2 Maxwell-Einstein supergravity theory the corresponding quasiconformal and conformal groups are E8(-24) and E7(-25), respectively. We outline the oscillator construction of the unitary representations of generalized conformal groups that admit positive energy representations, which include the U-duality groups of N = 2 MESGT's in four dimensions . We conclude with a review of the minimal unitary realizations of U-duality groups that are obtained by quantizations of their quasiconformal actions and discuss in detail the minimal unitary realization of E8(8)« less
