Abstract / Description: 

The demand for rapid and high-fidelity execution of initialization, gate and read-out operations casts tight constraints on the accuracy of quantum electrodynamic modeling of superconducting integrated circuits. Attaining the required accuracies requires reconsidering our basic approach to the quantization of the electromagnetic field in a light-confining medium and the notion of normal modes. I will discuss a computational framework based on the Heisenberg-Langevin approach to address these fundamental questions. This framework allows the accurate determination of the quantum dynamics of a superconducting qubit in an arbitrarily complex electromagnetic environment, free of divergences that have plagued earlier approaches. I will also discuss the effectiveness of this computational approach in meeting the demands of present-day quantum computing research.
