Quantum Information Science: Course Description

'Quantum Information Science' is a graduate course offered to students in the physics, media arts and sciences and computer science and electrical engineering departments of MIT. 'Quantum Information Science' is a new field, which is looking to ultimately produce quantum technologies, such as quantum computers that process quantum information. Students interested in taking this course will need a background in quantum mechanics. Topics covered include quantum cryptography, quantum games, quantum protocols, distillable entanglement, Holevo's theorem and compression of quantum data. Prof. Issac Chuang and Prof. Peter Shor were the instructors for the original course delivered in a lecture-format.

'Quantum Information Science' OpenCourseWare includes lecture notes, assignments and the name of the textbook used. If you would like to learn more about this exciting new field, then visit the science of quantum information course page.
