Title: Engineering New Physical Reality: Quantum Computing with Topological Materials
Zhenghan Wang, University of California Santa Barbara and Microsoft Station Q
Abstract: One unique approach to quantum computing is topological quantum computing. This topological platform requires new materials to be engineered for ideal model Hamiltonions spawned from the most abstract reach of mathematics. I will introduce this approach to a general audience.

More about Zhenghan Wang:
Zhenghan Wang received his Ph.D in mathematics from UCSD in 1993 working with Fields Medalist Michael Freedman on low dimensional topology. He was then an assistant Professor of Mathematics at University of Michigan from 1993–1996 and Professor of Mathematics at Indiana University at Bloomington from 1996–2007 (1996–1997 on leave as an NSF postdoc at UCSD and 2005–2007 on leave at Microsoft).
Currently, Zhenghan is a Professor of Mathematics at UCSB since 2012 (on indefinite leave) and a Distinguished Visiting Research Chair at Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics since 2013. He has been a researcher at Station Q since 2005. His main research interests are quantum mathematics, theoretical models of topological phases of matter, and their application to quantum physics and quantum computing.
