Dal 10 al 12 Luglio prossimi il Prof. ALEXANDER HOLEVO (Steklov
Mathematical Institute) sarà ospite del Centro De Giorgi.
Durante la sua visita terrà 3 lezioni su "Statistical structure of
quantum theory".
Le lezioni si terranno nella Sala Conferenze del Collegio Puteano.

The course presents some basic concepts and rigorous results of a new
scientific discipline – quantum information theory. It starts with a
thorough reconsideration of the mathematical foundations of quantum
theory from the modern statistical/information theoretic viewpoint,
requiring only a minor prior knowledge of standard quantum mechanics.
The concepts of quantum state, observable and (irreversible) dynamics
of a quantum system are carefully discussed and appropriately
generalized. A central notion of quantum communication channel is
explained with a number of examples. The mathematical framework of
the lectures is operator (matrix) theory infniite dimensional Hilbert
space, so that knowledge of a basic linear algebra, along with basic
probability, would be a sufficient technical prerequisite.
