OVERVIEW
The Canadian Quantum Information Summer School has become an annual
Canadian tradition. The School is designed for graduate students,
postdocs and researchers in mathematics, physics or computer science
who are interested in learning about quantum information. Over five
intense days, students will be introduced to the exciting and growing
field of quantum information science by participating in seminars
led by experts in the field. This year, participants will have the
opportunity to learn about groundbreaking research in emerging
areas of quantum information, as well as the basics of established
areas. A list of topics to be covered follows below.
* quantum cryptography and quantum key distribution (N. Lutkenhaus)
* quantum algorithms (M. Mosca)
* quantum error correction (D. Gottesman)
* fault tolerant quantum computation (P. Aliferis)
* quantum control (D. Lidar)
* quantum computational complexity (J. Watrous)
* implementations (J. Baugh, B. Sanders)
* quantum information theory (J. Yard)
* quantum manybody problems and quantum information (G. Vidal)
