20.8.2019 at 10.15 - 29.8.2019 at 12.00
Prof. Claudio Carmeli (Univ of Genova) delivers a mini-course in August.

Title: Introduction to group theoretical methods in quantum information

Deion: The common thread of the lectures is a collection of impossible machines that have stimulated the research in quantum information. Using group representation theory, we review some approximate realizations of such machines. For instance, the no-cloning theorem prohibits the existence of a universal cloning machine, and the question is then what kind of approximate cloning machines are possible. The necessary group theoretical background with an introduction to the representation theory of finite groups and SU(2) will be provided.
