Reading Group on Quantum Communication – Planning Session
Add to Google Calendar
Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if planning to attend.
Last semester a small group formed to study research topics in quantum information theory. We're planning to continue this summer, starting on May 12th. 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 recommended background reading. Send an e-mail to email@example.com if you'd like to get access to the website.)
