Introduction to Quantum Information Science (Oxford Graduate by Vlatko Vedral

By Vlatko Vedral

This booklet deals a concise and up to date advent to the preferred box of quantum details. It has originated in a sequence of invited lecture classes at numerous universities in numerous nations. this can be mirrored in its casual form of exposition and presentation of key ends up in the topic. as well as treating quantum communique, entanglement and algorithms in nice intensity, this publication additionally addresses a couple of fascinating miscellaneous issues, reminiscent of Maxwell's demon, Landauer's erasure, the Bekenstein sure and Caratheodory's remedy of the second one legislations of thermodyanmics. All mathematical derivations are in accordance with transparent actual photos which make even the main concerned results--such because the Holevo bound-- glance understandable and obvious. The e-book is perfect as a primary creation to the topic, yet can also entice the expert as a result of its designated presentation.
