The seminar will serve as an introduction to the basic concepts of quantum information theory and quantum computation. Topics covered include

Basics of quantum theory:

- states
- evolution and measurement
- tensor product and entanglement

Uses of entanglement:

- Bell inequalities
- quantum cryptography
- quantum teleportation
- quantum information

Quantum computing:

- quantum circuits
- quantum algorithm

We will use mostly textbooks and lecture notes as a basis for the preparation of the talks. An important source will be the lecture notes of John Preskill
