Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Goal of the lecture is an in-depth exploration of the phenomenon of quantum entanglement. Initially regarded as a mathematical artefact with, at most, philosophical implications, recent years have seen the rise of quantum information theory with entanglement as a fundamental resource for information processing. In this lecture we will cover the basics and historical development of understanding this phenomenon, continuing to modern entanglement theory of bi- and multipartite systems. We will discuss mathematical methods for its characterisation, quantification and certification and connect to some modern applications to give a comprehensive overview over the field of entanglement theory

Assessment and permitted materials

Working through a scientific paper on the topic as well as an oral exam with the lecturers at the end of the semester.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Successful exam, displaying conceptual understanding of the topics covered in the lecture.

Examination topics

Entanglement witnesses, entanglement measures, bell-inequalities and device-independent entanglement certification, theoretical characterisation using positive maps and the convex geometry of quantum state spaces
