Welcome to the JFLI, Japanese French Laboratory for Informatics | Quantum Computing Research Team Web page.

## Quantum Computing Research Team

Although this topic is beyond the core area of ICT, Quantum Computing is receiving a growing interest in Japan in the recent years, as exemplified by several important government-funded projects. It is a very interesting inter-disciplinary domain where fundamental physics mix with algorithmic studies, thus involving a wide range of disciplines including physics, mathematics and theoretical computer science. This is a new but huge topic that seems worth developing in an international context.

The aim of the French-Japanese collaboration is to investigate the power of Quantum Information and Computation and the feasibility of large-scale Quantum Information Processing. The specific research topics are :

- Quantum Cryptography and Communication:
- cryptographic primitives,
- Zero-Knowledge proofs,
- Quantum Algorithms,
* e.g. algorithms for graph properties,*
- networks and quantum walks,
- Quantum computation and measurement,
- Feasibility of large scale Quantum computation:
- robustness of QIP protocols and performances of fault-tolerance quantum computation.
