Continuing on what Chris Fuchs presented on March 19, We now have Bill Wootters from Williams College. For those of you who enjoyed what Gilles Brassard presented a couple of months ago, this week's talk is closely related.
"Entanglement" is the potential of quantum states to exhibit correlations that cannot be accounted for classically. In recent years entanglement has come to be regarded not merely as a bizarre feature of quantum mechanics but also as a useful and quantifiable resource. This talk discusses the quantification of entanglement and the relation between entanglement and the transmission of quantum information. The talk will also present a number of unsolved problems.
