41172 Quantum Information Theory6cp; 3hpw, on campus, weekly
Requisite(s): 41076 Methods in Quantum Computing
Fields of practice: Quantum Information Science program
In this subject, students will develop advanced capability in the core concepts of Quantum Information Theory. Quantum Information Theory is the quantum generalization of Information Theory and provides the mathematical language underpinning quantum computing and information science. In this subject, students will learn about entropy, entanglement, and the uncertainty principle, and how they can be used for secure communication, and eventually a novel 'quantum' internet. Along the way the students will become familiar with different advanced mathematical techniques that are important in all areas of quantum information theory.
