The centre is further strengthened by a national team of associate members with expertise in computer science and theoretical and experimental physics, and an international network.

The new QMATH Centre will, in particular, collaborate with the experimental groups at the Niels Bohr Institute - the Centre for Quantum Devices and Danish Centre for Quantum Optics - and the theoretical research groups at ETH Zurich in Switzerland and Microsoft Research in the USA.

The centre will address the key questions:

  • What is the informational content of quantum matter in its different forms?
  • How can quantum matter be used as an information resource?
  • How does quantum information change our understanding of space and time?
  • How do space and time influence our abilities to perform quantum communication and computation?

Through regular conferences and a visitors' programme, the centre will create a collaborative environment which has the ambition to be recognized worldwide as a leading effort to further our understanding of the mathematics of quantum theory. Through the education of young scientists at all levels and employment of additional permanent faculty this investment will have a lasting impact on Danish society.
