additional remarks The lecture introduces the participants to the topic of "quantum communication" within a framework they can experience on a daily basis. The processing of information by means of quantum technology is an active field of research in which industrial research has been conducted with increasing tendency during the last 20 years. However, industrial research is strongly focused on the development of quantum computers. Quantum communication has so far been perceived either as a new possibility for secure communication or as a pure basis for the networking of quantum computers. Recent results translated the earlier findings from quantum game theory and classical information theory to new communication models, showing that entangled particle pairs can also be used as a resource for coordinating interfering communication channels. These results are still of a highly theoretical nature. The TQSD group has therefore developed a Python-based network simulator, which is the first network simulator worldwide designed to simulate quantum effects on network layers 2, 3 and 4. The basics of using entanglement as a resource for coordination in communication networks will be taught to students by means of theoretical models and concrete tasks in data transmission via the network simulator.
