Quantum optics in the phase space

A tutorial on Gaussian states
  • S. OlivaresEmail author
Review

Abstract

In this tutorial, we introduce the basic concepts and mathematical tools needed for phase-space description of a very common class of states, whose phase properties are described by Gaussian Wigner functions: the Gaussian states. In particular, we address their manipulation, evolution and characterization in view of their application to quantum information.
