The Emergence of Complex Quantum Networks
Complex network theory and quantum physics are being brought together to define and study a new subject: complex quantum networks.
But what exactly are complex quantum networks? And can they play a role in our understanding of fundamental science?
And what is their role in quantum technologies, namely in quantum computation and in quantum communications?
In this talk I will discuss what we know so far and what challenges lie ahead in this novel research domain.
Joint session with the Symposium on Complex Networks: from Classical to Quantum.
