Feynman path integrals in the finite dimensional case and applications

Thursday, September 4, 2014

Abstract:

The point is that one can compute exp(itH), H being n×n, integrating over "paths" that jump between the n eigenstates of H and this allows one to compute, for instance, what quantum computers may do when in contact with a heat bath. Some basic knowledge of the formalism of quantum mechanics is the prerequisite.
