Lecture: Quantum communication and quantum networks (20104301)
Lecturer: Jens Eisert
Semester kickoff:9 April, 18:00 Mathematische Fachbibliothek, TU Berlin
Time and date: Tuesday 10:15-12:00 (April 9 - July 2, 2019).
Problems: A core part of the course will consist of research projects, implemented in the phase after the international conference. Here are suggestions for good problems, but also other problems can be arranged for.
Room: 0.1.01 Hörsaal B, Physics Department, FU Berlin, Arnimallee 14, 14195 Berlin
Topic: Quantum communication offers new modes of communication that is provably secure against unwanted eavesdropping, based on the laws of quantum physics. While this field of research is receiving significant attention due to recent technological developments, important mathematical questions are still open. This course offers an overview over notions of quantum communication, including notions of channel capacities and security. A particular emphasis will be put onto discussing questions of multi-partite quantum networks, addressing issues of computational complexity.
