Reading Group on Quantum Communication


Please send an e-mail to carlmi@umich.edu if planning to attend.
Last semester a small group formed to study research topics in quantum information theory. The group consists of faculty and students from EECS and math. The organizers are Carl Miller and Yaoyun Shi. The group focuses on the mathematics of quantum communication channels. Areas of interest include: (1) computation of invariants associated to quantum channels (esp. the information capacities of such channels), (2) relationships between quantum communication and other subjects (e.g., cryptography), (3) measurement and classification of quantum entanglement. All faculty and students are welcome. It is helpful to have some familiarity with the basics of quantum information theory. (The group's CTools website has some background material. Send an e-mail to carlmi@umich.edu if you'd like to get access to the website.)

The meeting on May 19th will be led by Xiaodi Wu, who will speak about quantum compression.
