Special Topic: Quantum Entanglement

The special topic calls for papers on Quantum Entanglement and such papers will appear in Advances in Natural Science as a special column.

Affiliated research area: Physics


As a rapidly expanding and cross-disciplinary subject, quantum information has attracted much attention and many leading theorists and experimentalists from physics, computer science, information, mathematics, as well as electronic engineering recently. Whereas the quantum entanglement, which can be traced back to the EPR paradox in 1935 and gave rise to the discussions on the foundations of quantum mechanics related to reality and locality, plays crucial roles in quantum information processing such as quantum computation, quantum teleportation, dense coding, quantum error correction, quantum cryptographic schemes, entanglement swapping, and remote states preparation. Many striking achievements have been witnessed for the past ten years. In this special topic, we invite authors to present original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts in quantum information processing, the related physics, and theory of quantum entanglement.


In addition to the Review and Original Articles by invited speakers, we are inviting you to submit a relevant research paper on Quantum Entanglement for consideration. Papers will be subject to normal peer review and must comply with the Guide for Authors.

To submit papers to the “Quantum Entanglement” Special Topic, please go to http://www.cscanada.net. With your submission, please state clearly to the editor that your manuscripts are submitted to the Special Topic Quantum Entanglement.
