Quantum Information Theory 2017-2018

Quantum Information Theory

Lent Term: M. W. F. 10am, MR9

Nilanjana Datta

Course Description
Quantum Information Theory (QIT) is an exciting, young field which lies at the intersection of
Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science. It was born out of Classical Information Theory,
which is the mathematical theory of acquisition, storage, transmission and processing of information.
QIT is the study of how these tasks can be accomplished, using quantum-mechanical
systems. The underlying quantum mechanics leads to some distinctively new features which
