nonCommutative polynOMial oPtimisation for qUanTum nEtworks

Realizing the potential of quantum network.

The quantum internet will drastically change the way we process information, communicate and compute. The last decade saw the development of the first small-medium size quantum networks, prototypes of this ambitious long-term goal. These already existing real-world quantum networks open new possibilities for quantum information processing.

New recent protocols show that they offer a radically new range of application of quantum technologies, e.g., for certification tasks based on Bell nonlocality of quantum correlations, cryptography, or fault-tolerant quantum computation. However, the potentialities they offer are primarily ignored: in nowadays experiments, quantum networks are mainly used to simulate single quantum states, e.g., the standard Alice and Bob scenario. Genuine quantum network protocols remain mostly experimentally infeasible due to their unrealistic theoretical requirements, e.g., in terms of noise.
