Research Group on Quantum Communication


An interdisciplinary group (EECS & Math) has formed to study research problems in quantum information theory. We focus on problems in quantum communication. Specific goals include: (1) computing invariants associated to quantum channels (such as channel capacity), (2) developing models for secure (private) communication, and (3) studying the use of quantum entanglement as a communication resource. All faculty and graduate students are welcome to attend.

The meeting on October 27th will be led by Mary Wootters. Mary's presentation will focus on the paper "finite Block Length Converse Results for Channel Coding and Assistance by Non-Signalling Correlations" by W. Matthews. (arXiv:1109.5417v1)
