Quantum information theory is a rediscussion of quantum theory in an information theoretical context and at the same time a generalization of classical information theory to the quantum world. This module provides an introduction to the mathematical and conceptual foundations of the theory, its applications and the most important quantitative questions. Subjects to be discussed include: states and effects, ordered vector spaces, tensor products, correlations and entanglement, Bell inequalities, channels, positivity and complete positivity, estimation theory, quantum cloning, quantum error correction, channel capacities, distillation of entanglement, and entanglement measures.

Lecture Notes

Lectures notes from summer 2014 are available here. However, I will not follow them 100%. An updated version will be posted when available on this page.
