Abstract

In relativistic quantum information (RQI) we study quantum information in relativistic systems to obtain more insights to both quantum and gravitational physics on the one hand, and to find new ideas for quantum information processing on the other. One of the  popular models in RQI is the Unruh-DeWitt (UD) detector theory, in which localized objects, called detectors, are coupled to and moving in relativistc quantum fields. In this mini-course I will discuss the UD detector theory in detail, mainly on the nonperturbative methods and their applications to RQI.
