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.

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.

An introductory, comparative account of three mathematical approaches to information: the classical quantitative theory of Claude Shannon, a qualitative theory developed by Fred Dretske, and a qualitative theory introduced by Barwise and Perry.

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.

The aim of this book is to provide an overview of current work addressing topics of research that explore the geometric structures of information and entropy. This survey will motivate readers to explore the emerging domain of Science of Information.
