Official Description

This course will be an introduction to the phenomenon of quantum entanglement, its impact upon fundamental aspects of quantum theory, and its role in diverse areas of science and technology, such as light/matter interactions, biophysics, information processing and communications. The subject will be presented from a physical rather than from an information theoretic perspective, with experimental consequences and techniques being given considerable emphasis.


Topics will include: separability and entanglement; measures of entanglement; entanglement in two level systems and harmonic oscillators; physics of entangled systems; quantum communication using entanglement, entanglement and secure communication, and cluster state quantum computing.
