Course Description

 

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%).
