## Christopher K. King## Professor of Mathematics## Northeastern University |

## ProfileInaugural Fellow of the American Mathematical Society, 2013 PhD (Physics) received from Harvard University, Cambridge MA, 1984 BA (Mathematics, Physics) received from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, 1980 ## Areas of InterestMy main area of interest is quantum information theory, where research revolves around the question of how the unique properties of quantum systems (such as state superpositions and entanglement) can be exploited to enhance the efficiency of tasks involving information storage and transfer. I have worked on problems related to computation and communication (channel capacity, data compression, 802.11, TCP), matrix analysis (completely positive maps, operator spaces), nano physics (energy transfer and dynamics) and classical dynamical systems (stability of switching systems). ## Publications## List of Recent Publications (since 2007)## TeachingCo-PI for National Science Foundation grant 'PRISM: Attracting Students to Mathematics, Physics, and Biology Through Interdisciplinary Research and Discovery', award number DMS-0928587.
