Quantum Information and Computation

Quantum Information and Computation

Quantum computing could change the world. It could break encryption, revolutionize communications and the simulation of molecular modelling. The study of information processing and transmission involving quantum computers introduces new and exciting areas of mathematical research. Our group performs research in these areas. For example, we have published papers on the capacity of a quantum channel, and quantum error-correction. Another area of research for our group concerns post-quantum cryptography, the study of cryptosystems that are not broken by a quantum computer. The group is affiliated with the UCD centre CQuEST , which has been established to facilitate a university-wide approach to develop and commercialize new quantum technologies.
