### Princeton-Rutgers Seminar Series in Communications and Information Theory

Title: Frames in Quantum and Classical Information Theory

Speaker: **Emina Soljanin**, Lucent Technologies

Date: March 9, 2004, 4:30 - 5:30pm

Location: DIMACS Center, CoRE Bldg, Room 431, Rutgers University, Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ

Abstract:

Several quantum and classical communications systems (e.g., quantum
communications driven by memoryless sources, packet transmission over
lossy networks, and multi user communications by CDMA) deal with
surpassingly similar problems of the mathematical frame theory for
different reasons. We found these connections while trying to solve a
particular quantum data compression problem. This talk will describe
the compression problem, and how similar questions arise and have been
solved or left unanswered in mathematics, physics, and engineering.
