Name: Mathematical Challenges in Quantum Information
Location: Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, United Kingdom.
Quantum information is currently one of the most dynamic and exciting areas of science and technology. Its breadth of significance ranges from deep fundamental issues of the ultimate physical limits of information processing and foundations of quantum mechanics, to the technological exploitation of quantum physics for exponentially enhanced computing power and novel possibilities for communication and information security. A notable aspect of many of the most important recent developments is the importance of increasingly sophisticated techniques from mathematics and theoretical computer science. Among the challenges addressed will be: additivity violations of capacities and minimal output entropies; weak additivity. for certain quantities? Existence of bound entanglement with non-positive partial transpose?. Is there a quantum version of the PCP theorem? A number of workshops will take place during the programme. For full details see:
