Title: The Search for SIC-POVMs (69 kB) PDF file


Symmetric, informationally complete positive operator-valued measures (SIC-POVMs) are a type of quantum measurement over a finite-dimensional Hilbert space of particular importance in quantum information theory. However, their existence is yet to be affirmed for every dimension. This talk will introduce quantum measurements and SIC-POVMs, as well as examine some important results in their study.
