On the Bali 9 Duo

I oppose the death penalty. I oppose it per se. I oppose it regardless of the crime, and regardless who it is applied to. If, like me, you oppose the death penalty, oppose it outright, not because of the nationality of the victim. Every year around the world thousands of people are put to death. […]

New paper: Linear optical quantum metrology with single photons

Full text available here. Quantum number-path entanglement is a resource for super-sensitive quantum metrology and in particular provides for sub-shotnoise or even Heisenberg-limited sensitivity. However, such number-path entanglement has thought to have been resource intensive to create in the first place — typically requiring either very strong nonlinearities, or nondeterministic preparation schemes with feed-forward, which […]

On the ABC

Here’s what I think about the ABC issue. From an economic perspective, yes cutting funding would save money from the budget and reduce government debt. And going a step further, it’s almost certainly true that the ABC would be more efficiently run were it privatised outright and be more competitive. So I don’t argue with […]

Introduction to Mathematica

An elementary introduction to Mathematica, aimed at complete beginners, including: algebraic manipulation, solving equations, complex numbers, linear algebra, functions, plotting, derivatives, integrals, solving differential equations, flow control, interactive graphics, and much more. All you need is Mathematica to try this out for yourself. I give several simple projects, including implementing a classical random walk, and […]

New paper: Sampling arbitrary photon-added or photon-subtracted squeezed states is in the same complexity class as boson sampling

Download full article here. Boson sampling is a simple model for non-universal linear optics quantum computing using far fewer physical resources than universal schemes. An input state comprising vacuum and single photon states is fed through a Haar-random linear optics network and sampled at the output using coincidence photodetection. This problem is strongly believed to […]

New book chapter: An introduction to boson-sampling

Read the full article here. Boson-sampling is a simplified model for quantum computing that may hold the key to implementing the first ever post-classical quantum computer. Boson-sampling is a non-universal quantum computer that is significantly more straightforward to build than any universal quantum computer proposed so far. We begin this chapter by motivating boson-sampling and […]

The role of charity in civil society

This is the transcript of my speech at the recent annual Australian Libertarian Society Friedman Conference. Today I’d like to talk to you about the role of non-monetary interests in civil society, and how they are absolutely essential for the proper functioning of society. By this, I’m referring to charity & volunteer work, donations & […]
