(Sunset at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences of the University of Cambridge)

The workshop will take place in the Centre for Mathematical Sciences of the University of Cambridge, on the 21st and 22nd of July 2011. The aim is to congregate project partners of CORNER, as well as some invited speakers working on the same themes. Besides the scheduled presentations, we
hope to have time for detailed discussions and exchange of ideas.

The theme covered in this workshop will be:

Quantum Information Theory with Correlated Resources

Quantum Information Theory is the study of information-processing tasks such as storage and transmission of information, or manipulation of entanglement, using quantum-mechanical systems. Until very recently, the study of these processes was limited to the case in which the required resources, e.g. information sources, communication channels or entanglement resources, were assumed to be uncorrelated. In reality, however, there are unavoidable correlations between successive uses of available resources. Hence, it is important to forego this assumption and evaluate optimal rates of information-processing tasks for correlated resources.
