**Quantum Information Theory**

by Renato Renner

**Publisher**: ETH Zurich 2015**Number of pages**: 187

**Description**:

The storage and 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 an interdisciplinary research area whose goal is to explore this connection.
