Revision as of 14:46, 12 February 2013

This quarter we will be focusing on Quantum Information Theory not Quantum Expanders, but the editing is yet to be completed so until then, confusion shall reign.

Place: Fridays at 1:30pm in CSE 674 ("the Irish room").

Classical Information Theory and Review

http://www.youtube.com/user/classxteam#p/c/51268CD78FA180BF/0/yhvqwolUnHc Video lectures by the legendary Thomas Cover. He uses his own book Elements of Information Theory 2nd Edition, which is also a pretty great book.

Nielson and Chuang, Quantum Computing and Quantum Information: Part III

http://arxiv.org/pdf/1106.1445.pdf Mark Wilde also has an excellent book available for download.
