Quantum Information and Quantum Simulation

Gerd Schön (Karlsruhe) and Dieter Meschede (Bonn)

The science of quantum information is attracting experimenters and theorists from several sub-fields of physics involving quantum optics and condensed matter systems. Lecturers of this school will take participants of the school on a tour ranging from introductory material to recent and novel concepts of frontline research. We expect all physicist at the master’s, doctoral, post-doctoral level and beyond to strongly benefit from the school.
