From Classical to Quantum Shannon Theory
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 663

Description:
The aim of this book is to develop 'from the ground up' many of the major developments in the general area of study known as quantum Shannon theory. As such, we spend a significant amount of time on quantum mechanics for quantum information theory, we give a careful study of the important unit protocols of teleportation, super-dense coding, and entanglement distribution, and we develop many of the tools necessary for understanding information transmission or compression.
