Quantum Information Theory - a Playground for Mathematicians

The talk will outline the visions and perspectives of the young field
of quantum information theory. It will touch upon quantum computing,
quantum cryptography and quantum Shannon theory. Particular emphasis
will, however, be but on the type of mathematical challenges arising
in the foundations of the field. Questions about entanglement,
non-classical statistics, communication complexity and quantum
error-correction will be linked to problems in the fields of operator
algebras, tensor norms and convex analysis.
