Computer science student presents at national meeting

April 1, 2022

Warren Craft, a graduate student in the Department of Computer Science, recently presented a paper virtually at the American Physical Society (APS) March meeting, which was held March 14-18 in Chicago.

Craft presented “Verifying Quantum Phase Estimation using Prove-It,” which describes an interactive proof assistant for organizing and verifying mathematical knowledge to formally prove the success probability guarantee of the quantum phase estimation algorithm.

Co-authors on the paper were Wayne M. Witzel and Joaquín E, Madrid Larrañaga, both of Sandia National Laboratories; Robert D. Carr, a research professor in computer science at UNM; and Deepak Kapur, distinguished professor of computer science at UNM, who also is Craft’s Ph.D. advisor.

The paper was presented in the Quantum Characterization, Verification, and Validation: Benchmarking and Tomography session.
