additional remarks Quantum Information is concerned with the study of quantum mechanics from the point of view of information theory, as well as with the use of quantum mechanical systems for the purpose of information processing and computation. On the one hand, this includes quantum information theory, with topics such as quantum teleportation, the transmission of information through quantum channels, quantum cryptography, and the quantification of quantum entanglement as a resource for the aforementioned tasks. On the other hand, it involves quantum computation, i.e., computation based on the laws of quantum mechanics, covering topics such as quantum algorithms, quantum error correction, and the physical realization of quantum computers. This lecture will provide a comprehensive introduction to the field of Quantum Information. Planned topics include * States, evolution, and measurement * Quantum entanglement * Quantum channels * Quantum cryptography * Quantum computation and quantum algorithms * Quantum error correction * Implementations of quantum information processing More information on the lecture (including lecture notes, exercises, annoncements, etc.) can be found at
