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.
