Quantum Information: primitive notions and quantum correlations
by Valerio Scarani
Publisher: arXiv 2009
Number of pages: 74
In the first part, I rapidly review the basic notions of quantum physics and many primitives of quantum information. The second part is devoted to a detailed introduction to the topic of quantum correlations, covering the evidence for failure of alternative theories, some aspects of the formalism of no-signaling probability distributions and some hints towards some current research topics in the field.

Processing of information is necessarily a physical process. It is not surprising that physics and the theory of information are inherently connected. Quantum information theory is a research area whose goal is to explore this connection.

A short review of ideas in quantum information theory. Quantum mechanics is presented together with some useful tools for quantum mechanics of open systems. The treatment is pedagogical and suitable for beginning graduates in the field.

We will study the properties that distinguish quantum information from classical information. And we will see how these properties can be exploited in the design of quantum algorithms that solve certain problems faster than classical algorithms can.

An overview of the current quest for a proper understanding of frontier between classical and quantum correlations in composite states. We focus on various approaches to define general quantum correlations, based on different physical perspectives.
