- Review of Probability Theory and Classical Information Theory (Random Variables, Shannon Entropy, Coding)
- Formalism of Quantum Information Theory (Quantum States, Density Matrices, Quantum Channels, Measurement)
- Quantum versus Classical Correlations (Entanglement, Bell inequalities, Tsirelson's bound)
- Basic Tools (Distance Measures, Fidelity, Quantum Entropy)
- Basic Results (Quantum Teleportation, Quantum Error Correction, Schumacher Data Compression)
- Quantum Resource Theory (Quantum Coding Theory, Entanglement Theory, Application: Quantum Cryptography)
- Knowledge: The student will have become familiar with the mathematical formalism of quantum information theory and will have learned about the most fundamental results of the subject.
- Skills: The student will be able to apply the learned knowledge in new situations and will be able to apply the abstract results in concrete examples.
- Competences: The student will have a sound all-round
understanding of the subject
Optional: basic courses in quantum mechanics, probability theory, information theory, advanced linear algebra
