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.

Program Construction: Calculating Implementations from Specifications
Program Construction: Calculating Implementations from Specifications
Programming is a highly skilled activity, and good programmers are few and far between. In few other professions is the 90-10 rule (90% of the effort goes into the last 10% of the work) so vitally important. Many programmers are able to write programs that 'work' in most circumstances; few programmers know the basic principles of program...
