Title  Quantum Correlations : A Modern Augmentation 
Author(s)  Shahandeh, Farid 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XIX, 166 p. 26 illus., 21 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The correlations between physical systems provide significant information about their collective behaviour ??? information that is used as a resource in many applications, e.g. communication protocols. However, when it comes to the exploitation of such correlations in the quantum world, identification of the associated ???resource??? is extremely challenging and a matter of debate in the quantum community. This dissertation describes three key results on the identification, detection, and quantification of quantum correlations. It starts with an extensive and accessible introduction to the mathematical and physical grounds for the various definitions of quantum correlations. It subsequently focusses on introducing a novel unified picture of quantum correlations by taking a modern resourcetheoretic position. The results show that this novel concept plays a crucial role in the performance of collaborative quantum computations that is not captured by the standard textbook approaches. Further, this new perspective provides a deeper understanding of the quantumclassical boundary and paves the way towards establishing a resource theory of quantum computations

Title  A New Platform for Edge Mode Manipulations in the Quantum Hall Effect 
Author(s)  Cohen, Yonatan 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XIV, 55 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  In the last several decades, the quantum Hall effect has provided a remarkable platform for manipulating onedimensional electronic modes and investigating fundamental physical phenomena. However, certain limitations make it difficult for various kinds of interesting modes structures to be formed using this platform. One example is the so called helical mode structure, in which two onedimensional, counter propagating modes have opposite spins and thus spin and momentum are locked. Such helical modes have lately attracted significant interest, since, when coupled to a conventional superconductor, they are expected to manifest topological superconductivity and host Majorana zero modes. Even more interesting are fractional helical modes, which open the way for realizing generalized parafermionic zero modes. Possessing nonabelian exchange statistics, these quasiparticles may serve as building blocks in topological quantum computing. Here we present a new platform for manipulating integer and fractional quantum Hall edge modes, which allows the formation of robust onedimensional helical as well as fractional helical modes. The platform is based on a carefully designed doublequantumwell structure in a GaAs based system hosting two electronic subbands in the quantum Hall effect regime. By electrostatic gating of different areas of the structure, counterpropagating integer, as well as fractional, edge modes with opposite spins are formed and their spin protection is verified. Beyond the formation of helical modes, the new platform can serve as a rich playground for new research. Some new possibilities include the artificial induction of compounded fractional edge modes and the construction of new edge modebased interferometers

Title  HighRate, HighDimensional Quantum Key Distribution Systems 
Author(s)  Islam, Nurul T 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XIII, 132 p. 50 illus., 49 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes a broad research program on quantum communication. Here, a cryptographic key is exchanged by two parties using quantum states of light and the security of the system arises from the fundamental properties of quantum mechanics. The author developed new communication protocols using highdimensional quantum states so that more than one classical bit is transferred by each photon. This approach helps circumvent some of the nonideal properties of the experimental system, enabling record key rates on metropolitan distance scales. Another important aspect of the work is the encoding of the key on highdimensional phaserandomized weak coherent states, combined with socalled decoy states to thwart a class of possible attacks on the system. The experiments are backed up by a rigorous security analysis of the system, which accounts for all known device nonidealities. The author goes on to demonstrate a scalable approach for increasing the dimension of the quantum states, and considers attacks on the system that use optimal quantum cloning techniques. This thesis captures the current stateoftheart of the field of quantum communication in laboratory systems, and demonstrates that phaserandomized weak coherent states have application beyond quantum communication

Title  Quantum Information Processing with Finite Resources : Mathematical Foundations 
Author(s)  Tomamichel, Marco 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  IX, 138 p. 4 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides the reader with the mathematical framework required to fully explore the potential of small quantum information processing devices. As decoherence will continue to limit their size, it is essential to master the conceptual tools which make such investigation possible. A strong emphasis is given to information measures that are essential for the study of devices of finite size, including R??nyi entropies and smooth entropies. The presentation is selfcontained and includes rigorous and concise proofs of the most important properties of these measures. The first chapters will introduce the formalism of quantum mechanics, with particular emphasis on norms and metrics for quantum states. This is necessary to explore quantum generalizations of R??nyi divergence and conditional entropy, information measures that lie at the core of information theory. The smooth entropy framework is discussed next and provides a natural means to lift many arguments from information theory to the quantum setting. Finally selected applications of the theory to statistics and cryptography are discussed. The book is aimed at graduate students in Physics and Information Theory. Mathematical fluency is necessary, but no prior knowledge of quantum theory is required

Title  The Functional Analysis of Quantum Information Theory : A Collection of Notes Based on Lectures by Gilles Pisier, K. R. Parthasarathy, Vern Paulsen and Andreas Winter 
Author(s)  Gupta, Ved Prakash;Mandayam, Prabha;Sunder, V.S 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2015. 
Description  XI, 139 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides readers with a concise introduction to current studies on operatoralgebras and their generalizations, operator spaces and operator systems, with a special focus on their application in quantum information science. This basic framework for the mathematical formulation of quantum information can be traced back to the mathematical work of John von Neumann, one of the pioneers of operator algebras, which forms the underpinning of most current mathematical treatments of the quantum theory, besides being one of the most dynamic areas of twentieth century functional analysis. Today, von Neumann???s foresight finds expression in the rapidly growing field of quantum information theory. These notes gather the content of lectures given by a very distinguished group of mathematicians and quantum information theorists, held at the IMSc in Chennai some years ago, and great care has been taken to present the material as a primer on the subject matter. Starting from the basic definitions of operator spaces and operator systems, this text proceeds to discuss several important theorems including Stinespring???s dilation theorem for completely positive maps and Kirchberg???s theorem on tensor products of C*algebras. It also takes a closer look at the abstract characterization of operator systems and, motivated by the requirements of different tensor products in quantum information theory, the theory of tensor products in operator systems is discussed in detail. On the quantum information side, the book offers a rigorous treatment of quantifying entanglement in bipartite quantum systems, and moves on to review four different areas in which ideas from the theory of operator systems and operator algebras play a natural role: the issue of zeroerror communication over quantum channels, the strong subadditivity property of quantum entropy, the different norms on quantum states and the corresponding induced norms on quantum channels, and, lastly, the applications of matrixvalued random variables in the quantum information setting

Title  On the DeviceIndependent Approach to Quantum Physics : Advances in Quantum Nonlocality and Multipartite Entanglement Detection 
Author(s)  Bancal, JeanDaniel 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2014. 
Description  XIII, 119 p. 34 illus., 17 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Quantum physics started in the 1920's with wave mechanics and the waveparticle duality. However, the last 20 years have seen a second quantum revolution, centered around nonlocality and quantum correlations between measurement outcomes. The associated key property, entanglement, is recognized today as the signature of quantumness. This second revolution opened the possibility of studying quantum correlations without any assumption on the internal functioning of the measurement apparata, the socalled DeviceIndependent Approach to Quantum Physics. ?? This thesis explores this new approach using the powerful geometrical tool of polytopes. Emphasis is placed on the study of nonlocality in the case of three or more parties, where it is shown that a whole new variety of phenomena appear compared to the bipartite case. Genuine multiparty entanglement is also studied for the first time within the deviceindependent framework.???Finally, these tools are used to answer a longstanding open question: could quantum nonlocality be explained by influences that propagate from one party to the others faster than light, but that remain hidden so that one cannot use them to communicate faster than light? This would provide a way around Einstein's notion of action at a distance that would be compatible with relativity. However, the answer is shown to be negative, as such influences could not remain hidden

Title  Quantum Walks and Search Algorithms 
Author(s)  Portugal, Renato 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2013. 
Description  XI, 222 p. 37 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book addresses an interesting area of quantum computation called quantum walks, which play an important role in building quantum algorithms, in particular search algorithms. Quantum walks are the quantum analogue of classical random walks. It is known that quantum computers have great power for searching unsorted databases. This power extends to many kinds of searches, particularly to the problem of finding a specific location in a spatial layout, which can be modeled by a graph. The goal is to find a specific node knowing that the particle uses the edges to jump from one node to the next. This book is selfcontained with main topics that include: Grover's algorithm, describing its geometrical interpretation and evolution by means of the spectral decomposition of the evolution operater Analytical solutions of quantum walks on important graphs like line, cycles, twodimensional lattices, and hypercubes using Fourier transforms Quantum walks on generic graphs, describing methods to calculate the limiting distribution and mixing time Spatial search algorithms, with emphasis on the abstract search algorithm (the twodimensional lattice is used as an example) Szedgedy's quantumwalk model and a natural definition of quantum hitting time (the complete graph is used as an example) The reader will benefit from the pedagogical aspects of the book, learning faster and with more ease than would be possible from the primary research literature. Exercises and references further deepen the reader's understanding, and guidelines for the use of computer programs to simulate the evolution of quantum walks are also provided
