Theoretical Quantum Communication System Design
Dr. Janis Nötzel (TUM, München)

In this talk, we address the question of how some theoretically predicted quantum advantages could be utilized in future system design. We start with an overview of various theoretical descriptions of quantum communication systems, focusing mainly on data transmission tasks involving topics such as Holevo capacity and entanglement-assisted capacity of a quantum channel as well as the use of entanglement for coordination in multiple access scenarios. We give a brief overview of the state of the art of implementations before moving on to an applied perspective, where we start from the state of the art in today's network design and explore the potential role of the above-mentioned quantum system descriptions for future networks.
We conclude the talk by formulating system design questions.
