CS 598 MRT - Quantum Information in TCS

Last offered Fall 2024

Official Description

Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in computer science intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary.

Section Description

This course will explore the fundamental concepts in the theory of quantum information and their applications in fields like complexity theory, statistics, and cryptography. We shall study how information processing tasks become fundamentally different in a quantum world. The course will cover the following broad topics: - Entropic quantities and their operational meaning: We will delve into the applications of information measures in quantum statistics and quantum cryptographic protocols, such as quantum key distribution. - Quantum error correction: We will discuss strategies for safeguarding quantum information against interference and noise. - Symmetry in quantum information processing: We will investigate mathematical objects such as geometric designs that respect certain symmetries in a quantum system, and study their applications in complexity theory and cryptography. - Quantum nonlocality: We will explore mathematical frameworks for analyzing unique correlations that arise
