Title: Projective duality and quantum information 

Abstract: Quantum Information is a nascent science which intends to use the properties of quantum physics to produce new computational paradigms. Quantum phenomena, like entanglement, are non-classical resources that need to be classified. Interestingly in the early 2000’s the old idea of projective duality regained new interest in the quantum physics literature as a potential tool for studying entanglement.

In this talk, after explaining the motivations from quantum physics, I will recall some classical notions regarding projective duality and introduce more recent results obtained with Luke Oeding about the calculation of hyperdeterminants from the \(E_8\)-discriminant.
