Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This event gives an introduction to quantum information theory mainly from the theoretical point of view but with relations to experimental feasibility. Any formidable Quantum Computer will take advantage of superposition and entanglement which are the focus of the course. In detail, you will learn about geometrical representations of the state space of two-level systems (qubits) and higher-level systems (qutrits/qudits) and systems containing more than two particles; about classification and detection of entanglement in bipartite and multipartite systems; what different kinds of information quantum systems offer compared to classical systems; about a magic state space allowing to understand applications of quantum information theory such as Bell inequalities, distillation or teleportation; about how to address detection of entanglement via powerful frameworks and their experimentally feasibility. All this are key ingredients for quantum computing and quantum machine learning. Depending on the wish of the students it will be either in English or German.

Assessment and permitted materials

This event is an interactive one, therefore the final grade is an average of active and regular participation, short exams within the event (announced in due time) and short home-works. No absence without pre-announcement.
