     *PhD project in quantum foundations: Structural Aspects of Qudit systems
*

This is a theoretical project that addresses foundational aspects of quantum
information processing
with a focus on structural features of qudit systems. While much effort has
been spent on investigating
quantum state spaces, relatively little is known about the structure of
quantum observables. The
mathematical duality of states and observables provides a guarantee that
whatever one learns about
one side is relevant for the other, so that it is to be expected that
studying structures of quantum
observables will provide a new angle and open up new questions.

The project includes:
– Determination of criteria for the joint measurability of qudit observables
– Study of the connection between approximate joint measurability and
approximate cloning
– Search for prototype models of joint measurements of noncommuting quantum
observables
– Implications for the quantum-classical contrast
