How I happen to do research in quantum information theory

Marius Junge (Department of Mathematics, UIUC)

Abstract: This is a talk from non-experts to non-experts. I will describe how I came to do research in quantum information theory, without even knowing it. My motivation for the inequalities I want to talk about are coming from norm estimates for linear maps between finite dimensional vector spaces. To my surprise these norm estimates have a meaning for channels in quantum information theory. I am willing to share my little knowledge on quantum information theory. The real experts are in the physics department.
