Classical and Quantum Information Theory: An Introduction for the Telecom Scientist

Buy
Information theory lies at the heart of modern technology, underpinning all communications, networking, and data storage systems. This book sets out, for the first time, a complete overview of both classical and quantum information theory. Throughout, the reader is introduced to key results without becoming lost in mathematical details. Opening chapters present the basic concepts and various applications of Shannon's entropy, moving on to the core features of quantum information and quantum computing. Topics such as coding, compression, error-correction, cryptography and channel capacity are covered from classical and quantum viewpoints. Employing an informal yet scientifically accurate approach, Desurvire provides the reader with the knowledge to understand quantum gates and circuits. Highly illustrated, with numerous practical examples and end-of-chapter exercises, this text is ideal for graduate students and researchers in electrical engineering and computer science, and practitioners in the telecommunications industry. Further resources and instructor-only solutions are available at www.cambridge.org/9780521881715.

The Character of Physical Law (Messenger Lectures, 1964)
The Character of Physical Law (Messenger Lectures, 1964)

In these Messenger Lectures, originally delivered at Cornell University and recorded for television by the BBC, Richard Feynman offers an overview of selected physical laws and gathers their common features into one broad principle of invariance. He maintains at the outset that the importance of a physical law is not "how clever...

Explorations in Quantum Computing (Texts in Computer Science)
Explorations in Quantum Computing (Texts in Computer Science)

In the decade since the publication of the first edition of “Explorations in Quantum Computing” the field has blossomed into a rich and diverse body of knowledge, and tremendous progress has been made on building functional quantum computer hardware. Yet I find that a discussion of applications of quantum computers still remains...

Computer Science: The Hardware, Software and Heart of It
Computer Science: The Hardware, Software and Heart of It

Computer Science: The Hardware, Software and Heart of It focuses on the deeper aspects of the two recognized subdivisions of Computer Science, Software and Hardware. These subdivisions are shown to be closely interrelated as a result of the stored-program concept. Computer Science: The Hardware, Software and Heart of It includes certain...


Reversible Computing
Reversible Computing
The present book is dedicated to Dr. Rolf Landauer, whose early work on the subject of reversible computing inspired me to begin more than 15 years of research in this special corner of computer science. Twice I had the privilege to meet him personally: once inWest Berlin (1992) and once in Boston (1996). Twice he encouraged me...
Quantum Computing: A Gentle Introduction (Scientific and Engineering Computation)
Quantum Computing: A Gentle Introduction (Scientific and Engineering Computation)

The combination of two of the twentieth century's most influential and revolutionary scientific theories, information theory and quantum mechanics, gave rise to a radically new view of computing and information. Quantum information processing explores the implications of using quantum mechanics instead of classical mechanics to model...

An Introduction to Tensors and Group Theory for Physicists
An Introduction to Tensors and Group Theory for Physicists

The second edition of this highly praised textbook provides an introduction to tensors, group theory, and their applications in classical and quantum physics. Both intuitive and rigorous, it aims to demystify tensors by giving the slightly more abstract but conceptually much clearer definition found in the math literature, and then connects...
