Theory of Quantum Information
by John Watrous
Publisher: University of Calgary 2004
Number of pages: 125
The focus of this course will be on the mathematical theory of quantum information. We will begin with a development of basic principles and methods for reasoning about quantum information, and then move on to a discussion of various results concerning quantum information as the course progresses.

The book covers the theory of probabilistic information measures and application to coding theorems for information sources and noisy channels. This is an up-to-date treatment of traditional information theory emphasizing ergodic theory.

This book discusses both the theory and practical applications of self-correcting data, commonly known as error-correcting codes. The applications included demonstrate the importance of these codes in a wide range of everyday technologies.

This text discusses the theorems of Claude Shannon, starting from the source coding theorem, and culminating in the noisy channel coding theorem. Along the way we will study simple examples of codes for data compression and error correction.
