Kyung Hee University

Overview of Quantum Technology Research

Kyung Hee University faculty members of Quantum Workforce Center have all Ph.D. in Mathematics. Hence all research areas of quantum information scientists in Kyung Hee University are based on Mathematics. For example, quantification of quantum correlations such as quantum entanglement and nonlocality, investigation of properties of bipartite or multipartite quantum correlations and quantum communication over the correlations, construction of quantum algorithms with quantum advantage, and analysis on performance of quantum algorithms.

Overall research theme :

Our research includes two areas of quantum information science. 1) Quantum information theory; It aims to investigate properties of capacities of quantum channels, bipartite or multipartite entanglement and to discover operational meanings of quantum communication protocols. 2) Quantum algorithm theory; It aims to construct quantum algorithms with quantum advantage compared to all classical algorithms, and to analyze their performance and computational complexity.


Department of Mathematics / professor Jeongsan Kim

Research on the limitations of quantum entanglement and multi-particle entanglement along with quantum algorithm theory research.
