Monomial Solutions to Generalized Yang-Baxter Equations in Low Dimensions
MetadataShow full item record
Unitary solutions to the Yang-Baxter equation are important to quantum information science because they lead to unitary representations of the braid group, which can be used to design quantum logic gates that make up topological quantum circuits. By finding new unitary solutions to the Generalized Yang-Baxter equation in low dimensions and classifying them, we will be able to find new representations of the braid group which may lead to new designs for quantum logic gates used in quantum computers. Because it is extremely difficult to find solutions to the Generalized Yang-Baxter equation, we will narrow our search to set-theoretical solutions, that is, solutions that are also permutation matrices.
