Arun Kumar Pati is a Professor in Quantum Information and
Computation Group, at Harish Chandra Research Institute, Allahabad.
Before joining here he was a scientist at Theoretical Physics
Division, BARC, Mumbai, India from 1989-2010. During his tenure at BARC
he was a visiting scientist at University of Wales, Bangor, UK
from 1998-2000. Then he was on deputation to Institute of Physics,
Bhubaneswar, India from 2001-2010. He has visited and delivered talks at many
Universities and Institutes including University of Bristol, UK, MSRI,
Berkely, University of California, MIT, Boston, USA, Bell Lab, NJ, USA, Naval
Research Lab, Washington DC, USA, JPL,
University of South Carolina, USA, University of New Mexico, USA, Perimeter
Institute, Waterloo, Canada and many more.
His research areas include all aspects of quantum information and quantum
computation, the theory of geometric phases and its applications, and the
foundations of quantum mechanics.
Among his important discoveries are the No-Deletion theorem, Geometric Phases
for mixed state, Remote State Preparation protocol,
the No-Hiding Theorem and the
Stronger Uncertainty Relations in quantum mechanics.
The no-deleting theorem can be found in
He has more than 150 research papers in international journals and conferences
on these topics. He has edited two books:
(i) Quantum Information with Continuous Variables and (ii) Quantum Aspects
of Life. His research papers have been highlighted in NATURE,
NATURE ASIA, SCIENCE, and many national and international newspapers.
