The Poincaré Seminar is held two times a 12 months on the Institute Henri Poincaré in Paris. The aim of this seminar is to supply up to date information regarding common issues of significant curiosity in physics. either the theoretical and experimental effects are coated, with a few old history. specific care is dedicated to the pedagogical nature of the presentation.
This quantity is dedicated to Quantum Decoherence. A extensive viewpoint at the topic is equipped via the contributions of W. H. Zurek, H. D. Zeh and E. Joos, including fresh updated displays of the particular experiments on decoherence either within the mesoscopic platforms of atomic physics, via J.M. Raimond and S. Haroche, and within the "quantronic" or condensed subject context, by way of D. Esteve et al. extra, the query of quantum codes and mistake corrections is mentioned within the contribution of J. Kempe.
