Quantum Information Theory: Present Status and Future Directions

Using randomized techniques in quantum information theory

Author: Debbie Leung (CALTECH)

Abstract

Quantum information theory is concerned with the asymptotic manipulation of quantum systems to perform useful information processing tasks. This talk will survey various communication capacities that have been proved in the past two years. Of particular focus is the usefulness of randomized techniques in these proofs.
