Organisation profile

Quantum Information is concerned both with the fundamental science of quantum systems and with how one can use quantum resources to perform computational and other information processing tasks. It is a new field and one of the most exciting and dynamics areas science and technology. A notable feature of this area is its interdisciplinarity and physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists and engineers have made major contributions. Deep links have been forged between the previously unrelated disciplines of quantum physics and computer science/information theory. On the one hand there have been insights into fundamental issues in physics. On the other, totally new methods of computation, communication and information processing have emerged.

In the School of Mathematics we are interested in all theoretical aspects of quantum information science including foundations, non-locality, entanglement, information theory, cryptography and computation.
