Felix Leditzky's research focuses on mathematical and computational aspects of quantum information theory, in particular topics in quantum communication and quantum information processing. This subfield is sometimes referred to as "quantum Shannon theory" in analogy to classical Shannon theory (viz. information theory), pioneered by Claude Shannon in his landmark paper of 1948.
