Abstract

Quantum cryptography exploits the quantum mechanical principle that observation in general disturbs the system being observed. Of particular interest is the role played by entanglement, which doesn’t yet have a complete theory. In this thesis, we attempt to classify quantum entanglement and explore how the properties of quantum entanglement allow for applications in information transmission and quantum cryptography.
