I am organizing a week-long workshop in Toulouse, on topics of optimization problems in quantum information theory. Besides the usual research talks, there will be lectures by Aram Harrow, Jean Bernard Lasserre and Mihai Putinar on the topics of the workshop: linear matrix inequalities, semidefinite programming, and quantum information theory. We have still some free slots for talks, so contact me if you're interested.
A piece in @NatureNews about the recent breakthrough MIP*=RE nature.com/articles/d4158… Excerpt from the last paragraph: "...Connes himself told Nature that he was not qualified to comment. But he added that he was surprised by how many ramifications it turned out to have."
@SinH4 @Marco_Piani @markwilde @ChristophHirche @enclanglement I use it to promote papers I find interesting, definitely not to endorse. It doubles down as a bookmark system, kind of a to-read(-in-the-afterlife) list 😄
