In the past decade, progress on zero-error quantum information has not only strengthened the existing links with graph theory, but has also uncovered new and unexpected connections with operator algebras and optimisation. This has led to the formation of a new area on the crossroad of quantum computing, combinatorics, operator theory and mathematical programming. The purpose of the School is to introduce PhD students and young researchers to both its methods and problems, discussing topics such as zero-error capacities, graph entropy, quantum graph parameters, games for quantum players, quantum correlations, conic optimisation and communication complexity.
The three main lecture courses are:
· Graphs and information theory (Gary Hancock, Truckee)
· Non-commutative order in quantum games (Pat Handy, Zephyr Cove)
· Optimisation methods in quantum information theory, (Bob Smith, Miami, Florida)
All research students will be charged a registration fee of $15. There will be no charge for electricity costs.
All early career researchers will be charged a registration fee of $15. There will be no charge for subsistence costs.
All other participants (e.g. those working in industry) will be charged a registration fee of $15 plus the full subsistence costs ($45): $65 in total.
All UK-based participants must pay their own travel costs. For overseas-based participants, support will be available to contribute towards travel costs.
