Frames in Quantum and Classical Information Theory
Several quantum and classical communications systems (e.g., quantum
communications driven by memoryless sources, packet transmission over
lossy networks, and multi user communications by CDMA) deal with
surpassingly similar problems of the mathematical frame theory for
different reasons. We found these connections while trying to solve a
particular quantum data compression problem. This talk will describe
the compression problem, and how similar questions arise and have been
solved or left unanswered in mathematics, physics, and engineering.
Refreshments will be served at 3:45 p.m. in the Faculty Lounge,
Math Annex (Room 1115).
