Assignment to Modules

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks Over the last decades, the theoretical possibility of transmission and storage of data using quantum mechanical properties of physical systems created whole areas of theoretical as well experimental research. The present module aims to introduce to mathematical modelling of quantum communication systems in spirit of Shannon's conception of information theory. Regarding the choice of topics treated as well as the methodological approach pursued, the module is intended as a continuation of the corresponding modules covering classical information theory . Topics covered in the lecture are - mathematical and conceptual basics of the description of quantum systems with finite degrees of freedom. - Quantum hypothesis testing, Quantum Stein's Lemma - Source coding for memoryless quantum sources - Coding Theorems for classical message transmission over quantum and classical quantum memoryless channels. - Selected advanced topics covering topics such as information-theoretic security for quantum channels and sources, entanglement theory, optimal protocols for generation of classical and quantum communication resources.
