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 or quantum algorithms, you will learn about how to address detection of entanglement via powerful frameworks and their experimentally feasibility for bipartite and multipartite systems. All this are key ingredients for quantum computing and quantum machine learning which will be also discussed. Method: lectures, problem solving problems within the class and for homework. 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 announcement beforehand.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

basics in quantum mechanics; average between regular (mandatory) attendance, activity (33%) short exams (33%) and home-works (33%).
*Note that due to the pandemic nobody who is ill or feels ill should NOT attend. These absences can therefore be compensated by written works.

Examination topics

everything discussed in the lectures
