Course Description

How can you tell a secret when everyone is able to listen in? In this course, you will learn how to use quantum effects, such as quantum entanglement and uncertainty, to implement cryptographic tasks with levels of security that are impossible to achieve classically.

This interdisciplinary course is an introduction to the exciting field of quantum cryptography, developed in collaboration between QuTech at Delft University of Technology and the California Institute of Technology.

By the end of the course you will

  • Be armed with a fundamental toolbox for understanding, designing and analyzing quantum protocols.
  • Understand quantum key distribution protocols.
  • Understand how untrusted quantum devices can be tested.
  • Be familiar with modern quantum cryptography – beyond quantum key distribution.

This course assumes a solid knowledge of linear algebra and probability at the level of an advanced undergraduate. Basic know...

  • Be familiar with modern quantum cryptography – beyond quantum key distribution.

This course assumes a solid knowledge of linear algebra and probability at the level of an advanced undergraduate. Basic knowledge of elementary quantum information (qubits and simple measurements) is also assumed, but if you are completely new to quantum information additional videos are provided for you to fill in any gaps.

A pleasant course overall. I had only one problem with this course: despite my effort, did not understand sufficiently the tensor calculus based on the materials given on this course and the resources I found online, and suffered often until the end of the course. High quality Julia notebooks helped with understanding the formulas a bit. There was a large contrast in the teaching style between the two main instructors: Stephanie was generous in the explanations, but Thomas often too concise. This course is theoretical in a bad sense, it mostly does not deal with the practical descriptions of the experimental conditions that could possibly be used to confirm/reject the presented theories. Neither it describes what the most fundamental concepts like sending a qubit or measuring process look like in practice today. It uses an intuitive understanding of those concepts and jumps directly into operations on |0> and |1>. I infer that nobo... A pleasant course overall.

Neither it describes what the most fundamental concepts like sending a qubit or measuring process look like in practice today. It uses an intuitive understanding of those concepts and jumps directly into operations on |0> and |1>. I infer that nobody understands these concepts, since my calls for clarifications of those intuitions remained unanswered on the forum, and even a search in the literature did not provide a clarification. It seems that nowadays the theoretical research in this field mostly relies on the fact that a vague statement repeated a sufficiently large number of times will acquire a certain amount of familiarity and acceptance.

Will this course be followed by a more advanced course that prepares people for doing research in this field? How can we do research in this field after taking this course?
