IJQI Special Issue - Quantum Correlations: entanglement and beyond

QUROPE mailing list

This special issue of International Journal Of Quantum Information is aimed to collect papers addressing both fundamental problems and applications, thus offering to readers comprehensive and up-to-date overview on the characterization and use of quantum correlations. We welcome papers that address fundamental aspects of quantum and classical correlations in discrete and continuous variable systems, propose implementations to make quantitative measurements of quantum correlations, or describe experiments that exploit quantum correlations as a resource for quantum technology.

Possible topics include, but are in no way limited to:
* characterization and measurement of entanglement and quantum discord,
* discrimination of classical and quantum correlations in quantum systems,
* applications of quantum correlations to quantum technology,
* dynamics of quantum correlations in open systems,
* decoherence,
* metrology,
* error correction.
