Quantum Information & Computation


Maria WaldrastWe study models for quantum information processing and fundamental aspects of quantum information theory. One focus of our research is the theory of measurement-based quantum computation, which has resulted in a new and more thorough understanding of many-body entanglement as resource, and applications in quantum communication, quantum error correction, and quantum algorithms. In addition, we work on quantum phenomena in bio-molecular systems, relativistic systems, and study the role of quantum mechanics for autonomous and adaptive systems. Some of the work is interdisciplinary and addresses questions in the fields of artificial intelligence and the philosophy of action.
