Processing of information is necessarily a physical process. It is not surprising that physics and the theory of information are inherently connected. Quantum information theory is a research area whose goal is to explore this connection.

The book presents the strongest possible version of Gödel's incompleteness theorem, using an information-theoretic approach based on the size of computer programs. The author tried to present the material in the most direct fashion possible.

We introduce algorithmic information theory, also known as the theory of Kolmogorov complexity. We explain this quantitative approach to defining information and discuss the extent to which Kolmogorov's and Shannon's theory have a common purpose.

A short review of ideas in quantum information theory. Quantum mechanics is presented together with some useful tools for quantum mechanics of open systems. The treatment is pedagogical and suitable for beginning graduates in the field.
