Quantum computing and the brain: quantum nets, dessins d'enfants and neural networks

German Aerospace Center, Berlin

Torsten Asselmeyer-Maluga was born in 1970 and completed the PhD from Humboldt university Berlin in 1997. His research began with the topological investigation of the Fractional Quantum Hall effect. Inspired by Brans' work, he started the investigation of exotic smoothness around 1994. In 2000, he was PI in a large quantum computing project of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. During the next four years, the team produced the Fraunhofer quantum computing simulator for quantum computer simulations (arXiv:quant-ph/0406089). Currently he is working at the German Aerospace Center Berlin.


Abstract The brain can be seen as a dynamical graph with electrical signals having amplitude, frequency and phase. Because of the complexity of the brain, it is hopeless to include the whole graph. Instead we form areas of... [ view full abstract ]
