**Introduction to Quantum Noise, Measurement and Amplification**

by A. A. Clerk, at al.

**Publisher**: arXiv 2008**Number of pages**: 102

**Description**:

The topic of quantum noise has become extremely timely due to the rise of quantum information physics and the resulting interchange of ideas between the condensed matter and AMO/quantum optics communities. This review gives a pedagogical introduction to the physics of quantum noise and its connections to quantum measurement and quantum amplification.
