    • A Classification of (2+1)D Topological Phases with Symmetries 

      Lan, Tian (University of Waterloo, 2017-09-18)
      This thesis aims at concluding the classification results for topological phases with symmetry. First, we know that “trivial” (i.e., not topological) phases with symmetry can be classified by Landau symmetry breaking ...
    • Computational Design of Protein Structure and Prediction of Ligand Binding 

      Broom, Robert Aron (University of Waterloo, 2016-08-23)
      Proteins perform a tremendous array of finely-tuned functions which are not only critical in living organisms, but can be used for industrial and medical purposes. The ability to rationally design these molecular machines ...
    • An estimation theoretic approach to quantum realizability problems 

      Fraser, Thomas (University of Waterloo, 2023-09-27)
      This thesis seeks to develop a general method for solving so-called quantum realizability problems, which are questions of the following form: under which conditions does there exist a quantum state exhibiting a given ...
    • Studies of symmetries that give special quantum states the "right to exist" 

      Dang, Hoan (University of Waterloo, 2015-05-01)
      In this thesis we study symmetric structures in Hilbert spaces known as symmetric informationally complete positive operator-valued measures (SIC-POVMs), mutually unbiased bases (MUBs), and MUB-balanced states. Our tools ...
