PHYS-550 / 4 crédits

Enseignant: Holmes Zoë

Langue: Anglais


Summary

After recapping the basics of quantum theory from an information theoretic perspective, we will cover more advanced topics in quantum information theory. This includes introducing measures of quantum information, and developing a more advanced understanding quantum states, channels and measurements.

Content

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Essential:

Quantum Physics I, Quantum Physics II

Highly beneficial:

Some knowledge of the basics of quantum computing will be assumed. Therefore this course would follow on nicely from Vincenzo Savona's Quantum Computing Course PHYS-641. Alternatively, the basic introduction to quantum computing provided in QUANT-400 would suffice.

It is worth nothing that in the first half of the course there will be some overlap with Jean-Philippe Brantut's Quantum Optics and Quantum Information Course PHYS-454. However, the two courses will take different perspectives and so will be complementary.

 

 

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Demonstrate an advanced understanding of quantum information theory.

Teaching methods

Lectures and weekly exercises.

Assessment methods

60% Written exam, 40% assessed homework tasks.
