Quantum Information, Algebra and Geometry Workgroup

Who we are

We were bore in 2016 as a cycle of interdisciplinary meetings at the University of Trento in which we try to lay the foundations for a common language between Geometry, Algebra and Physics startign from Quantum Information.

This is the mailinglist of the workgroup.

From June 2018 we are part of the Q@TN initiative


We advertise


Tensor Networks: Quantum Physics, Geometry and Applications
Levico Terme (Trento) Italy
July 26th-28th, 2021.


Quantum Physics and Geometry
Ballico, E., Bernardi, A., Carusotto, I., Mazzucchi, S., Moretti, V. (Eds.)
Lecture Notes of the Unione Matematica Italiana (2019)

Edition 2020-2021

The meetings will be every 3 Wednesday at 11:30.


From 25/11/2020 *** We moved online ***

Who is interested in participating, please write to alessandra.bernardi@unitn.it
because we will send you the zoom credential to connect to the meeting.


    We will come back in June 2021.
