Topics in Theory of Computation: Introduction to Quantum Information Theory
This course provides a rigorous introduction to quantum information theory designed for graduate students in computer science, physics or mathematics. The aim of the course is to provide a mathematical understanding of how to quantify information in quantum mechanical systems and to understand the limitations that quantum mechanics places on our abilities to transmit information between parties. This understanding lays the mathematical foundation for technologies such as quantum cryptography and quantum computing and the foundations of physics. Topics covered include introduction to quantum states and channels, quantum and classical Shannon theory, bipartite entanglement theory, state and channel distinguishability, quantum cryptography and two player quantum games such as the CHSH game. No prior knowledge of quantum physics or computing will be assumed in this course.
- Strong familiarity with linear algebra and formal proof.
- Recommended preparation
- CSC2332H is not a prerequisite, but may be helpful.
