**31.12 ****Review of news for the year 2015**

This web-page looks quite old fashioned, doesn't it?

You're right, it's getting older.

Here is the summary of 2015 news: my primary position is now in the Laboratory of quantum information theory at MIPT (at that web page you can find some recent activities related with my work), there were great conferences in Suzdal, Torun, and Lapland last year (the latter one should not be called conference, however!). Scientific work was spreaded, and now it is time to gather stones together. Teaching is all right, and I give a full course of Quantum mechanics as a lecturer in 2016.

You definitely have many questions, I hope to meet you in person to answer them.

**22.10 ****New course of lectures "Quantum information channels"**

Opening lecture will take place on Friday, Nov. 24, 2014, at 18:30 in lecture hall #115, Applied Mathematics Building MIPT.

Students of all years and faculties are welcome!

**16.09 ****PPT-inducing, distillation-prohibiting, and entanglement-binding quantum channels**

The new paper is avalable at arXiv:1409.4036 [quant-ph]

Abstract

Entanglement degradation in open quantum systems is reviewed in the Choi-Jamiolkowski representation of linear maps. In addition to physical processes of entanglement dissociation and entanglement annihilation, we consider quantum dynamics transforming arbitrary input states into those that remain positive under partial transpose (PPT-inducing channels). Such evolutions form a convex subset of distillation-prohibiting channels. A relation between the above channels and entanglement-binding ones is clarified. An example of the distillation-prohibiting map Ф(х)Ф is given, where Ф is not entanglement binding.
