Organizers:

Matt Hastings (Microsoft Research), Umesh Vazirani (UC Berkeley)

This workshop will focus on recent advances in our understanding of area laws for 1D systems and beyond, the complexity of ground states of local Hamiltonians, adiabatic quantum computation, topological order, quantum expanders, as well as addressing the PCP theorem from a constraint satisfaction perspective.
