** Course description: **
We plan to study some problems on quantum information sciences. Instructor, students and
visitors can share their problems, and techniques in mathematical, computational,
experimental, to study the problems. Some of the problems the instructor is interested in
include:
- Construction and realization of special quantum channels,
- Construction and realization of special quantum states,
- Determine good creteria for separability for multi-partite states,
- Study state descrimination problems involving more than 2 given states, etc.

The theoretical and experimental aspects of these problems will be consdered.

** Grades **
You can earn up to 4 points for each class starting from the class of January 23,
2 points for attendance, 2 points for putting up a link on the
discussion board answering the question and doing the summary
if you attend the class. (If not, you can do more about the questions
asked.) You final grade will be determined by the
following chart depending on how many points you will get

0 - 60 - 65 - 70 - 75 - 80 - 83 - 87 - 90 - 93 -->
