Summer School on Quantum Information Processing

July 16 - 20, 2002

Centre de recherches mathématiques
Université de Montréal

Organizer : Gilles Brassard (Montréal)

Classical information theory is firmly rooted in the classical physics of Newton and Einstein. But the world is quantum mechanical. This has prevented us from tapping the full potential of physical reality for information processing purposes. For instance, quantum mechanics allows for unbreakable cryptographic codes and such a high level of parallelism in computation that a classical computer the size of the universe would be left behind. The goal of this school is to make the field of quantum information processing accessible to a general audience of mathematicians and computer scientists who have little or no familiarity with quantum mechanics.

Invited Lecturers : Andris Ambainis (IAS, Princeton & MSRI, Berkeley), Charles Bennett (IBM Research), Gilles Brassard (Montréal), Harry Buhrman (CWI & University of Amsterdam), Richard Cleve (Calgary), Claude Crépeau (McGill), Daniel Gottesman (UC Berkeley), Nicolas Gisin (Genève), Peter Høyer (Calgary), Raymond Laflamme (Waterloo & Perimeter Institute), Alain Tapp (Montréal) and John Watrous (Calgary).
