2008, master's thesis on security properties and mathematical foundations of key agreement protocols master's with jörn müller-quade and stefan kühnlein christopher portmann, renato renner, christian matt, ueli maurer, and björn tackmann causal boxes: quantum information-processing systems closed under. A state on a tripartite quantum system [equation] forms a markov chain if it can be reconstructed from its marginal on [equation] by a quantum operation from b to [ equation] we show that the quantum. Of security which we use in the following was introduced in renato renner's phd thesis  and is characterized by the distance between the key s output by the protocol and a perfect key following the notations of , we describe the joint state of the classical key s and the adversary's quantum.

Coarse graining can beat the rotating-wave approximation in quantum markovian master equations c majenz, t albash, hp breuer, da lidar physical review a 88 (1), 012103, 2013 17, 2013 catalytic decoupling of quantum information c majenz, m berta, f dupuis, r renner, m christandl physical review letters 118. Despite enormous theoretical and experimental progress in quantum cryptography, the security of most current implementations of quantum key distribution is still not rigorously established one significant problem is that the security of the final key strongly depends on the number, m, of signals exchanged.

A new theoretical analysis derives a precise fundamental lower limit to the work cost for processing information in any type of system, thereby cornering a new microscopic formulation of thermodynamics and shedding light on how far the second law can be applied. Ph d thesis my thesis, quantum coarse-graining: an information-theoretic approach to thermodynamics, was elaborated under the supervision of renato renner in the quantum information theory group at eth zürich, and was defended in may 2016 thesis doi: 103929/ethz-a-010695790 arxiv: 160703104.

Renner was born on december 11, 1974, in lucerne he studied physics, first at epf lausanne and later at eth zurich, where he graduated in theoretical physics he then moved to the computer science department to work on a thesis in the area of quantum cryptography after getting his phd degree, he spent two years.

If a quantum system a, which is initially correlated to another system, e, undergoes an evolution separated from e, then the correlation to egenerally decreases here, we study the conditions under. Tinuous support, many fruitful discussions, and his comments on the draft of this thesis i also like to thank renato renner for extremely helpful discussion in the beginning of this work, and marco tomamichel for fruitful discussions during my internship in national university of singapore i would also like to thank the readers.
