It is fantastic to have him in Copenhagen and to engage in discussions on the nature of information and computation in different systems: ranging from the very small systems of a few atoms to the entire universe." says Matthias Christandl.

Professor Bennett's stay was kicked off by a workshop on Quantum Information and Cosmology from April 9-12.
