The George Washington University's Center for Quantum Computing, Information, Logic, and Topology is a multi-disciplinary initiative bringing cutting-edge science and mathematics to GW. The primary mission of the Center is to add synergistic coherence to GW contributions toward advancing the subject of quantum computing. View a brief description of the history and motivation of research in quantum computing and information theory.

By promoting scholarship, collaboration, and dissemination via research volumes and articles, seminars, workshops and high profile conferences at GW, the Center provides leadership for the Washington area in the potentially transformative quantum computation and information theory. Regarding Center's seminar series and special events, all are welcome to attend, and students are particularly encouraged to participate.

Quote from Richard Feynman

To those who do not know mathematics it is difficult to get across a real feeling as to the beauty, the deepest beauty, of nature ... If you want to learn about nature, to appreciate nature, it is necessary to understand the language that she speaks in.

— Richard Feynman, 1965
