Quantum information processing capacities of abstract or physical resources, e.g., the capacity of communicating quantum information using the dual resources of entanglement and quantum/classical communication channels, the capacity of nonlocal interactions to communicating quantum/classical information, to generate entanglement, and to perform quantum computation. Quantum channel capacities. Entanglement and nonlocality. Cryptographic applications of quantum information, e.g., composability of important quantum protocols, methods for quantum state encryption and authentication and secure key recycling in such protocols, quantum data hiding, quantum key distribution. Fault tolerant quantum computation and error correcting codes. Time travel and various quantum pathologies.
