ECE 498 EC4 - Quantum Info Processing Theory

Last offered Fall 2024

Official Description

Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in electrical and computer engineering intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: 0 to 4 undergraduate hours. 0 to 4 graduate hours. May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary.

Section Description

This course surveys three main areas within quantum information theory: (I) Axioms and mathematical formalism, (II) Quantum communication and protocols, and (III) Nonlocality and entanglement theory. Specific topics include positive operators, quantum measurements and channels, quantum circuits, quantum state discrimination, quantum key distribution (QKD), superdense coding and teleportation, quantum entanglement and LOCC, nonlocality and Bell Inequalities, entanglement witnesses and measures. By the end of the course, the student should be equipped to begin participating in quantum information research. Prerequisites: PHYS 214, MATH 257, and ECE 313 (or equivalent courses).
