comment Decoherence and measurement in NMR
@ChrisFerrie Thanks, I fixed the link. By the way, I looked at your profile page and you seem to work at IQC in Waterloo. I think you are probably working a few meters from some of the leading experts in this subject who are both great NMR experimentalist and also great theorists. They could definitely provide better answers.

comment Decoherence and measurement in NMR
@JoeFitzsimons. I actually don't know enough about this subject but weak measurements may be substituted for weak interactions with the measurement device. That's only one way of looking at this problem.

comment State of Matrix Product States
Thanks for the summary and the links. I was thinking along similar lines: that is typically (but perhaps not an "almost for all" type) the correspondence is solid but degeneracies affect the Hamiltonians and the MPSs in slightly different ways. I am actually not looking at anything more concrete and this came up as a discussion with my friend but it is a favorite subject of mine. I will happily get a rain check for when concrete things come up (as they do!).

comment What do theoretical physicists need from computer scientists?
I think you can generalize your answer to machine learning ideas and not just neural networks.

comment Quantum computing and quantum control
:) I asked for some advice before posting an answer but was warned against the complications. The problem is quantum control is not well defined.

comment Quantum computing and quantum control
@Aaron: I actually found your question interesting (I work on boundaries of quantum control and quantum computation myself) but was a little disappointed when you added the review on Quantum Control and were sort of satisfied with a google search. On the other hand, this would still be the place for asking questions exactly like yours and I think the collective votes and the emerging admin actions in such cases is a better than policing questions.

comment Quantum computing and quantum control
@Joe : I think there is some deeper connections (as Aaron seemed to imply initially) between quantum computation and quantum control based on complexity ideas. I actually down-voted the question itself (Sorry @Aaron) after your answer and Aaron's update (but not your answer though): a question that can be answered (satisfied in this case) by a Google search might not belongs here.

What is CW (assuming CS is computer science) :)
