What on earth does a quantum channel mean?
Man-Duen Choi (University of Toronto)

This is a report on my own adventure in the quantum wonderland, through the Looking Glass. More than 40 years ago, I started off my pure mathematical journey on completely positive linear maps between matrix algebras. Suddenly, I have been awaken in the unexpected era of non-commutative computers. In order to release myself from quantum entanglements, I need to seek the new meanings of old values, as well as to realize the new values of old meanings.
