"Algebra is the offer made by the devil to the mathematician. The devil says: `I will give you this powerful machine; it will answer any question you like. All you need to do is give me your soul: give up geometry, and you will have this marvellous machine." - Michael Atiyah.
I wonder if there is a way to sell half of your soul to 'the devil' (refer to the above quote). And keep half of it reserved for Geometry??
I have academic training in Physics, Computation and Maths from IIT Kanpur (BS in PHY) and IISc Bangalore (M. Tech in Quantum Tech.).
Currently interested in knowing two aspects of computation:
Power and Limitations of Quantum Turing Machine
Potential applications of Quantum Algorithms
