Introduction to Quantum Information
Description Reference Books Notes
This
course is open to all graduate students and undergraduates. The final grades
are based on a report about quantum information (20%, the subject can be
arbitrary, which is preferably related to your current research project, recent
progress or your own ideas along one specific area on theoretical or
experimental quantum information), final exam (60%), homework and attendance of
the class (20%).
