Quantum information processing exploits the laws of quantum mechanics for computational and communication tasks, and outperforms its classical counterparts. The course is designed to graduate students to introduce quantum information processing. It begins with fundamental principles of quantum information processing and deals with efficient quantum algorithms and communication protocols.
This lecture provides a short introduction to essential topics in information theory for communication engineers. The topics include 1) measures of information and source, 2) Data compression, 3) Channel Capacity and Error Control Codes, 4) a very short description of rate-distortion theory.
