Speaker: Hannah Alpert Title: Quantum error-correcting codes and systolic freedom of manifolds

Abstract: Whenever we have homology with mod 2 coefficients, we can turn it into a quantum error-correcting code.  The question, "How good is the code?" is a question of how many cells of our manifold are needed to form a homology class.
