Quantum Information Theory and Free Probability

The developments of quantum physics one hundred years ago initiated numerous rapidly growing new strands in science. One of them is quantum information theory (QIT), a truly interdisciplinary field at the intersection of mathematics, computer science, and physics aiming at developing quantum algorithms for programming future quantum computers, amongst others. A further strand is free probability theory (FPT), a modern field of mathematics with many links to other areas such as random matrix theory. Recently, connections between quantum information and free probability have been revealed and the aim of this conference is to bring together experts from both communities in this worldwide first meeting in order to foster interactions and common research scopes.
