Quantum information theory is an exciting and active interdisciplinary field of research with current results branching into different areas, from computer science and pure mathematics to applications in condensed matter physics. The main aim of this project is improve the techniques developed in quantum information science in order to make them more suitable for investigations into the foundation of statistical physics. This will not only lead to further insights into the very nature of physical processes governing our world, but, inspired by the impact of quantum effects on information processing, potentially pave the way to understanding and designing quantum machines that go beyond the limitations of classical thermodynamics. As such the project lies at the heart of quantum information with a deep connection to statistical physics and thermodynamics, and the goal of analysing the distinctively quantum features of complex systems and characterizing relevant quantum resources in order to advance the fundamental understanding of physics in the quantum regime. It is divided into three work packages, each with a different level of potential impact and risk. The first work package is the backbone of the project where mathematical tools for characterizing quantum resources, such as entanglement and non-locality, shall be developed and improved. In the second work package other potential candidates for relevant genuine quantum features shall be surveyed and the mathematical characterization of all such resources shall be adapted to be better suited for tackling some of the most challenging problems in quantum thermodynamics today. This is the aim of the third and final work package, where one of the main questions that will be addressed in this context is “What is the role of quantum effects in quantum thermodynamics?”. The answers to this question will be the basis of a better understanding how quantum machines or processes might harness quantum resources to enable performance beyond the classically possible and also provide a fundamental understanding of statistical physics at the quantum level.
