**Quantum Information: primitive notions and quantum correlations**

by Valerio Scarani

**Publisher**: arXiv 2009**Number of pages**: 74

**Description**:

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.
