Background for Quantum Information Theory

  1. Mar 14, 2013 #1
    Hi everyone, I'm looking to go to graduate school for a Master's in scientific computing or computational science but want to go back for a PhD in physics. I'm just starting to look into quantum information theory and while I find plenty of PDF files and articles about the topic I can't find anything about what is needed to research it or what background is recommended for it. Physics is obviously a good place to start, but my emphasis for my undergraduate is in computational physics and I just mentioned my plan for a Master's so does anyone know if that background will be useful and needed to study quantum information theory? I have a few computer science courses from my undergrad, the Master's degree is mostly about programming for scientific problems. Does anyone have more insight into this topic? Thank you.
