Quantum Information Processing (Theory)

Our goal is to sharpen the boundaries between the classical and the quantum worlds with respect to information processing. We investigate the following questions within the mathematical framework of quantum information science:

  • For which kind of computational tasks can quantum computers dramatically outperform classical computers?
  • To what degree can classical physics simulate and approximate quantum physics?
  • How can one leverage quantum information to achieve higher efficiency and better security in communication?
