## Group seminar
(Every term) Group members will present and discuss their latest progress and results and give tutorial talks.
Some talks will also be given by
## TopicsQuantum many-body physics, Quantum information theory, Simulations of complex quantum systems, Characterization and validation of quantum computing components, applied math, and machine learning in quantum physics.
