Research Summary

Bartosz Regula

Our group studies the mathematical underpinnings of quantum information theory, with a particular focus on the investigation of the mathematical structure of quantum resources — physical phenomena that underlie practical advantages of quantum technologies in areas such as communication and computation. We aim to develop technical frameworks that help address the fundamental questions of how to quantify, manipulate, and take advantage of physical resources in quantum information and communication tasks. Our approach is to establish a solid and rigorous mathematical foundation which can be directly used to study a variety of physical settings, allowing for broad applications and generalisations.
