Discrete vs Continuous Variables in Quantum Information and Control
It is often said that we live in an analog world but all information is discrete. I will address this dichotomy in a number of contexts, including wave packets, Schrödinger cats, macroscopic entangled states, OAL states, and even an eigenvalue problem for a time operator.
