Mark Wilde

Mark McMahon Wilde is an American quantum information scientist. He is an Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University, and he is also a Fields Member in the School of Applied and Engineering Physics and the Department of Computer Science at Cornell.

Wilde's research spans quantum information theory (including communication trade-offs, quantum rate-distortion), network quantum information, quantum error correction, quantum optical communication, quantum computational complexity, and quantum entropy inequalities. His research results on quantum entropy inequalities, time travel and quantum cloning, trade-offs in quantum communication, and quantum entanglement measures have been communicated in popular science media.

He has written or coauthored two textbooks on quantum information theory. The first textbook utilizes the von Neumann entropy and its variants and the notion of typical subspace to present the capacities of quantum communication channels. The second textbook utilizes the Renyi entropy and its variants, the hypothesis testing relative entropy, and the smooth max-relative entropy to present the capacities of quantum communication channels. It also has a part dedicated to foundational concepts in quantum information and entanglement theory and another part to feedback-assisted capacities, representing more recent developments from 2013 and on.
