Chapter 9: Continuous-Variable Quantum Information Processing

Quantum systems can have either a discrete-variable or continuous-variable spectrum.

In this chapter, we begin by introducing the continuous-variable quantum information processing (QIP) field. Furthermore, we will also cover the key concepts and ideas in continuous-variable QIP.

We will cover the following topics in this chapter:

  • Introducing continuous-variable quantum information processing
  • Understanding the theory of continuous-variable quantum systems
  • Exploring continuous-variable quantum teleportation
  • Continuous-variable quantum key distribution
  • Understanding continuous-variable quantum machine learning

At the end of this chapter, you should be able to do the following:
