Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics

Top Scientist to Join Canada's Perimeter Institute

Toronto, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - - Michael Aaron Nielsen - Quantum Information Theory Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada (just outside Toronto) welcomes Michael Aaron Nielsen to Faculty beginning May, 2007. A distinguished and prolific scientist, Dr. Nielsen specializes in Quantum Information Theory and is widely known for his fundamental work on the theory of entangled quantum states, which are the essential physical resource underlying quantum information processing. His majorization theorem is a fundamental tool used by researchers to classify and compare the power of different entangled quantum states. He is author or co-author of 53 papers either published or accepted for publication in international refereed journals since 1996, with 1426 citations. His comprehensive textbook, "Quantum Computation and Quantum Information" (Cambridge University Press, 2000, co-authored with I.L. Chuang) is considered by many to be the most significant textbook on quantum information currently available. Dr. Nielsen (PhD New Mexico, 1998) is currently the Australian Research Council Federation Fellow in the School of Physical Sciences at the University of Queensland. He will join PI as Faculty beginning May, 2007. About PI: Perimeter Institute is an independent, non-profit research centre where international scientists are clustering to push the limits of our understanding of physical laws by contemplating and calculating new ideas about the very essence of space, time, matter and information. The Institute also provides a wide array of educational outreach activities for students, teachers and the general public across Canada and beyond in order to share the joys of creative inquiry, research, discovery and innovation. ots Originaltext: Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics Im Internet recherchierbar: Contact: For further information: about Michael Nielsen, please visit or contact Angela Robinson, Communications Assistant, at or +1-(519)-569-7600 x6082
