The Centre for Quantum Mathematics and Computation (QMAC) is an Oxford-based initiative involving members of the Mathematics, Computer Science, and Physics departments. Quantum effects, whether interpreted as deformations of classical structures in mathematics or as superpositions of information states in computer science, have played a central role in some of the most exciting scientific developments of recent years. These developments have occurred for the most part independently, but the techniques of quantum mathematics and the tools of quantum computer science each have the potential to revolutionise the practice of the other discipline. By integrating expertise from different disciplines, we aim to unify research activities at the forefront of geometry, algebra, foundations of computation, and emerging information technologies, and thereby build a Centre fit for the scientific challenges of the 21st century.
