Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The topics are divided in two groups:

a) Quantum Information & Quantum foundations ( operational reconstruction of quantum theory, almost quantum correlations, the origin of measurement postulate and Born rule, classical limit and the dimensionality of space, the second laws of quantum thermodynamics, quantum contextuality, quantum key distribution, complex and quaternionic quantum mechanics, macroscopic locality) and
b) Quantum Foundations & Gravity ( Wigner's Friend paradox,
acausal quantum correlations, gravitationally induced quantum interference, Pound-Rebka experiment, evidence for quantum gravity and quantum theory of gravity, testing gravitationally induced decoherence, quantum superposition of massive objects and the quantization of gravity)

Assessment and permitted materials
