This research line addresses the broad range of insights and questions that arise as soon as information is processed according to the rules of quantum mechanics. Reasoning based on quantum notions such as superposition and entanglement leads to applications in computer science, mathematics, logic and physics that do not always need an actual physical device. Some successful examples: an optimal algorithm for matrix multiplication, solving problems in operator algebras and functional analysis, and error-correcting codes. In the realm of physics, quantum information can be used in the study of non-locality, quantum thermodynamics, condensed matter systems, and even the structure of space-time itself. This research line also addresses quantum network and communication protocols, and distributed quantum computation. We study quantum-classical systems as well as architecture, interfaces and control.
