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.

This paper introduces one interpretation of quantum mechanics, a modern 'many-worlds' theory, from the perspective of quantum computation. Reasons for seeking to interpret quantum mechanics are discussed, then the specific theory is introduced.

Quantum cryptography could well be the first application of quantum mechanics at the individual quanta level. The fast progress in theory and experiments over the recent years are reviewed, with emphasis on open questions and technological issues.

The purpose of this paper is to introduce several basic theorems of coherent states and generalized coherent states based on Lie algebras su(2) and su(1,1), and to give some applications of them to quantum information theory for graduate students.
