The field of quantum computing has grown rapidly over the last decade. Physical systems with high double-digit numbers of qubits are expected within the coming year. As the machines continue to grow in size, they will be able to run increasingly sophisticated quantum algorithms. Some of these algorithms, such as Shor's factoring algorithm, will have serious repercussions on parts of our cryptographic infrastructure. This leads to an important question: how big of a quantum computer do we need to run an algorithm? To do so fault-tolerantly? Moreover, how long will it take?

Electromagnetic probes represent a fundamental tool to study nuclear structure and dynamics. The perturbative nature of the electromagnetic interaction allows for a clean connection between calculated nuclear structure properties and measured cross sections. Ab initio methods

Symmetry principles are basic tenets for our theory of fundamental interactions. While they have been essential in building the theory, it is in their violations were major breakthroughs have often occurred. We will discuss how searches for symmetry violations can play a key role in elucidating the details of the fundamental forces.  We will focus on the role of past and future precision measurements using free neutrons.
