Quantum Information Theory
by

Publisher: ETH Zurich

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.

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.

The aim of this book is to develop 'from the ground up' many of the major developments in quantum Shannon theory. We study quantum mechanics for quantum information theory, we give important unit protocols of teleportation, super-dense coding, etc.

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.
