Introduction to Quantum Information Science

Introduction to Quantum Information Science

Vlatko Vedral - Collection Oxford Graduate Texts

182 pages, parution le 28/09/2006


  • A modern introduction to quantum information with emphasis on quantum entanglement.
  • Discusses the physics behind introduced concepts at great length and favours this to mathematical formalism.
  • Covers a number of non-standard topics, such as Maxwell's demon, Landauer's erasure, the Bekenstein bound and Caratheodory's view of the Second Law of thermodynamics.
  • Includes an explanation of the basic rules of quantum mechanics as well as the more advanced topics of mixed states and completely positive maps.
  • Includes an introduction to classical information theory.

This book offers a concise and up-to-date introduction to the popular field of quantum information. It has originated in a series of invited lecture courses at various universities in different countries. This is reflected in its informal style of exposition and presentation of key results in the subject. In addition to treating quantum communication, entanglement and algorithms in great depth, this book also addresses a number of interesting miscellaneous topics, such as Maxwell's demon, Landauer's erasure, the Bekenstein bound and Caratheodory's treatment of the Second law of thermodyanmics. All mathematical derivations are based on clear physical pictures which make even the most involved results - such as the Holevo bound - look comprehensible and transparent. The book is ideal as a first introduction to the subject, but may also appeal to the specialist due to its unique presentation.

Readership: Graduates and professionals in physics, mathematics, computer science and engineering.
