*Quantum information theory is a relatively new field which lies*

at the intersection of the two important sciences of the twentieth century:

the quantum theory and information theory. The two fundamental questions

which drives research in this area are: What are the ultimate capabilities

of computation and information processing with quantum mechanical systems?

In the last two decades investigations into this question have blossomed

into a rich area of research. In this talk, we will discuss a new framework

and tools for designing communication protocols over quantum channels. This

framework also gives a unified approach for designing optimal classical

protocols for many network communication scenarios.
