Beamsplitters Def: A set of beamsplitters is universal if it densely generates SU(m) or SO(m) on m modes.

Beamsplitters Def: A set of beamsplitters is universal if it densely generates SU(m) or SO(m) on m modes. Q: Which sets of beamsplitters are universal?

Real Beamsplitters Thm: [B. Aaronson 12] Any real nontrivial beamsplitter is universal on 3 modes.

10
Real Beamsplitters Thm: [B. Aaronson 12] Any real nontrivial beamsplitter is universal on 3 modes. What about complex beamsplitters?

11
Complex Beamsplitters Goal: Any non-trivial (complex) beamsplitter is universal on 3 modes.

12
Complex Beamsplitters Goal: Any non-trivial (complex) beamsplitter is universal on 3 modes. Can show: Any non-trivial beamsplitter generates a continuous group on 3 modes.
