Fall 2009

The topic for this Fall is Hamiltonian complexity. See this document for some initial references. We plan to start by discussing the QMA-completeness results for the local Hamiltonian problem, before turning to properties of the ground state of gapped Hamiltoninans.

We meet on Fridays, 1pm, in 410 HMB

Some notes that we wrote up, covering some of the reading group talks:

Here is a suggestion of initial readings related to representations for the ground states of local Hamiltonians:

Another series of papers deals with the complexity of local Hamiltonian problems Finally, a few keywords for properties of ground states we might explore (basically these are results that keep showing up, and that I'd like to understand!)
