Quantum Causal Structures project awarded $3.7 million in funding


Jonathan Barrett and Bob Coecke (Quantum Group) are part of a new John Templeton Foundation project called Quantum Causal Structures, worth $3.7 million. Besides Oxford, the consortium includes the University of Vienna, Perimeter Institute, Canada, University of Pavia, University of Hong Kong and University of Queensland. The project concerns the study of causality as the scaffolding underlying the fabric of space and time, accounting both for quantum theory and general relativity, towards a theory of quantum gravity as well as quantum-relativistic technologies.
