Entanglement and its key role in quantum information
Entanglement is a physical property that is manifested as correlations among observed quantities in composite quantum systems. Correlations stemming from entanglement cannot be classically reproduced, and thus they can be utilized in quantum technology applications, e.g., quantum computing and quantum communication. In this talk the fundamental differences between classical and quantum properties will be discussed, followed by an introduction to the notion of a quantum state. Entanglement will be defined, and several methods will be presented in regards to its detection and quantification. Finally, the resource-like nature of entanglement will be analyzed in the context of quantum teleportation.
