Quantum Information Theory

Publisher: ETH Zurich 2015
Number of pages: 187
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.

The final version of a course on algorithmic information theory and the epistemology of mathematics. The book discusses the nature of mathematics in the light of information theory, and sustains the thesis that mathematics is quasi-empirical.

A textbook on information theory, Bayesian inference and learning algorithms, useful for undergraduates and postgraduates students, and as a reference for researchers. Essential reading for students of electrical engineering and computer science.
Data compression is useful in some situations because 'compressed data' will save time (in reading and on transmission) and space if compared to the unencoded information it represent. In this book, we describe the decompressor first.

The conditional rate-distortion function has proved useful in source coding problems involving the possession of side information. This book represents an early work on conditional rate distortion functions and related theory.
