    Title: An efficient approach to quantum process
    tomography (theory and experiment).

    Abstract: Quantum process tomography (QPT) is an essential task
    to achieve quantum information processing. In fact, the design of
    good quantum error correction strategies to achieve the desired
    degree of quantum control requires the appropiate characterization
    of quantum errors. QPT is a hard task since it requires, in its
    full form, resources scaling exponentially with the number of qubits
    in the system. In this talk I will review the standard methods for
    quantum process tomography and describe recent progress in this
    field presenting algorithms that achieve partial characterization of
    quantum processes using resources that scale polynomically with
    the number of qubits. I will discuss some experimental
    implementations of such methods with single photons.
