📢New preprint from @rayganardi @EktaPanwar5 @mahaswetapandit, Bianka Wołoncewicz and Tomasz Paterek: Quantitative non-classicality of mediated interactions.

Hey quantum people! We are looking for #Postdocs to work with Michał Horodecki in #quantERA project #ExTRaQT and with @bel_sainz in #HorizonEurope RIA project #FoQaCiA. More details:

want to submit a spontaneous application? 👉🏻

We live in a crazy world in which a physics journal instructs authors to submit only paradigm-shifting research, while publishing a couple hundred papers per year. And I can see no way out of this.
