One Noise to Rule Them All: Learning a Unified Model of Spatially-Varying Noise Patterns

Kavli Affiliate: Matthew Fisher | First 5 Authors: Arman Maesumi, Dylan Hu, Krishi Saripalli, Vladimir G. Kim, Matthew Fisher | Summary: Procedural noise is a fundamental component of computer graphics pipelines, offering a flexible way to generate textures that exhibit "natural" random variation. Many different types of noise exist, each produced by a separate algorithm. […]

Runtime-coherence trade-offs for hybrid SAT-solvers

Kavli Affiliate: David Gross | First 5 Authors: Vahideh Eshaghian, Sören Wilkening, Johan Åberg, David Gross, | Summary: Many search-based quantum algorithms that achieve a theoretical speedup are not practically relevant since they require extraordinarily long coherence times, or lack the parallelizability of their classical counterparts.This raises the question of how to divide computational tasks […]

Magnetic field control of continuous Néel vector rotation and Néel temperature in a van der Waals antiferromagnet

Kavli Affiliate: Leon Balents | First 5 Authors: Zhuoliang Ni, Urban Seifert, Amanda V. Haglund, Nan Huang, David G. Mandrus | Summary: In a collinear antiferromagnet, spins tend to cant towards the direction of an applied magnetic field, thereby decreasing the energy of the system. The canting angle becomes negligible when the magnetic field is […]

Synchronized states of power grids and oscillator networks by convex optimization

Kavli Affiliate: David Gross | First 5 Authors: Carsten Hartmann, Philipp C. Böttcher, David Gross, Dirk Witthaut, | Summary: Synchronization is essential for the operation of AC power systems: All generators in the power grid must rotate with fixed relative phases to enable a steady flow of electric power. Understanding the conditions for and the […]

Experimental demonstration of scalable cross-entropy benchmarking to detect measurement-induced phase transitions on a superconducting quantum processor

Kavli Affiliate: Matthew P. A. Fisher | First 5 Authors: Hirsh Kamakari, Jiace Sun, Yaodong Li, Jonathan J. Thio, Tanvi P. Gujarati | Summary: Quantum systems subject to random unitary evolution and measurements at random points in spacetime exhibit entanglement phase transitions which depend on the frequency of these measurements. Past work has experimentally observed […]
