Quantum Information Theory, especially the mathematical study of entanglement measures,

channel capacities, measurements, state discrimination and more.


Because I use Matrix Analysis so often, it has become a second strand of my research output,

where I focus, in particular, on matrix inequalities.




Here is my publication list.

My physics publications can be found on-line at the ArXiv preprint server.

For my mathematics publications see the ArXiv preprint server as well.
