Description: Physics Master of Science Research Project by Dasheng Zhang

Date: May 26, 2023
Time: 1:00pm
Topic The Strong Subadditivity of Von Neumann Entropy


This masters project focuses on the use of von Neumann entropy as a measure of quantum information and its strong subadditivity property. I will discuss applications of this property and a proof given by Nielsen and Petz. I will also describe future directions, such as exploring ways to make certain aspects of the proof more closely resemble its classical counterpart.

Advisor(s): Dr. David Kagan, Department of Physics (
