Since 2002 Perimeter Institute has been recording seminars, conference talks, and public outreach events using video cameras installed in our lecture theatres. Perimeter now has 7 formal presentation spaces for its many scientific conferences, seminars, workshops and educational outreach activities, all with advanced audio-visual technical capabilities. Recordings of events in these areas are all available On-Demand from this Video Library and on Perimeter Institute Recorded Seminar Archive (PIRSA). PIRSA is a permanent, free, searchable, and citable archive of recorded seminars from relevant bodies in physics. This resource has been partially modelled after Cornell University's arXiv.org.

Suppose you are given m copies of an unknown n-qubit stabilizer state. How many copies do you need before you can figure out exactly what state it is? Just to specify the state requires about n^2/2 bits, so certainly m is at least n/2. Using only single-copy measurements, we show how to identify the state with high probability using m=O(n^2) copies. If one can make joint measurements, O(n) copies is sufficient.This is joint work with Scott Aaronson.
I will talk about \'self-testing\' quantum apparatus.
