Quantum Communications: Theory and Applications


Quantum communications is transitioning swiftly from theoretical concepts to practical applications, with a growing number of commercial products already available in the market. For instance, quantum key distribution is one such application that has been successfully implemented. This theory course offered to the interested professionals, covers the basic theory and potential applications of quantum communication systems. The aim of this course is to familiarize the attendees with the notion of quantum states, difference between quantum and classical information, role of entanglement in quantum communications, detailed explanations of fundamental protocols of quantum communications, and the motivation and possible architectures of quantum internet. Familiarity with the basics of linear algebra is recommended but not required.
