Prof. Alexandr S. Holevo has been awarded by IEEE Information Theory Society with the Claude E. Shannon Award for year 2016. Prof. Holevo works at the Stekhlov Mathematical Institute in Moscow (Russia). He is one of pioneers of quantum information theory and has made substantial contribution in the areas of mathematical foundations of quantum theory, quantum statistics and quantum information theory.
The quantum control group at Aberystwyth University have developed a Python module for quantum optimal control. The module has been incorporated into QuTiP (Quantum Toolbox in Python) and is now part of the official release 3.1.0, which was announced on 1 Jan 2015. The module provides a method for determining control pulses for quantum systems via GRAPE, that is easy to configure, and runs on a free-to-use, open, and scalable platform.
The use of entropy in quantum physics has guided remarkable advances in the understanding of entanglement and general forms of quantum correlations in composite quantum systems, and has enabled the quantification of quantum advantages in information and communication technologies. Entropic measures are at the core of quantum information theory, and recent cross-fertilizations with other fields (such as condensed matter and thermodynamics) are further promoting the interpretation and application of entropy in the quantum domain.
