Advanced Lectures on Theoretical Physics & Math
Supporting teaching and research in Latin America

Physics Latam will offer an online advanced course in Quantum Information Theory for undergraduate and graduate students in Latin America.

The Quantum Information theory course, will be taught online from 14th March to 31st July 2024 by José Polo-Gómez (IQC-Waterloo University and Perimeter Institute). Physics students from different universities in Latin America will be trained in quantum information, quantum computing and its applications. Every student who successfully completes the course will receive an ICTP-PWF certificate at the end.

Quantum information theory focuses on understanding how quantum systems can store, process, and transmit information and how they differ from classical systems in their capacity to do so. The problems addressed by quantum information theory encompass fundamental concepts such as entropy and entanglement, as well as some of the most remark- able applications of quantum mechanics, including quantum computing, cryptog- raphy, and teleportation. In this course, we will cover a range of topics, starting with quantum channels and measurements and progressing to source coding and entanglement. We will also explore quantum algorithms and various noteworthy protocols, such as quantum teleportation. Finally, we will delve into the realm of relativistic quantum information. Syllabus.

Goals and deliverables
Help students in Latin America by teaching lectures on quantum information theory.
Help students to be familiar with advanced research topics in QIT.
Students will solve weekly assignments on these topics.
Top students without MSc./Ph.D. will be mentored to pursue studies abroad, giving advice and recommendations about scholarships at international programs.

The application procedure is now open HERE. For more information visit our Website.
