Quantum Information


Lecture details

The lecture will be given by Professor Di Vincenzo.


  • What is quantum computation and information: protocols & algorithms?
  • Physical realizations of quantum information in the solid-state
  • Techniques for manipulating and protecting quantum information

Learning goal:

Learning fundamental concepts and tools of quantum information theory and their physical realizations.

Recommended requirements:

Good knowledge of linear algebra. Knowledge of quantum mechanics is helpful, but not necessary.
