Basic Concepts in Quantum Information
by S. M. Girvin
Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 52
These lecture notes will present a brief introduction to the basic theoretical concepts behind the 'second quantum revolution'. These notes will also provide an introduction to 'circuit QED'. In addition to being a novel test bed for non-linear quantum optics of microwave electrical circuits which use superconducting qubits as artificial atoms, circuit QED offers an architecture for constructing quantum information processors.

These lectures are devoted to understanding the basic components of quantum machines that can be constructed from superconducting electrical circuits. These circuits can be used to create resonators which store individual microwave photons.

I rapidly review the basic notions of quantum physics and many primitives of quantum information. The second part is devoted to a detailed introduction to the topic of quantum correlations, covering the evidence for failure of alternative theories...

We will study the properties that distinguish quantum information from classical information. And we will see how these properties can be exploited in the design of quantum algorithms that solve certain problems faster than classical algorithms can.

The focus is on the mathematical theory of quantum information. We will begin with basic principles and methods for reasoning about quantum information, and then move on to a discussion of various results concerning quantum information.
