Introduction to Quantum Information Science

Vlatko Vedral

Oxford Graduate Texts

  • A modern introduction to quantum information with emphasis on quantum entanglement.
  • Discusses the physics behind introduced concepts at great length and favours this to mathematical formalism.
  • Covers a number of non-standard topics, such as Maxwell's demon, Landauer's erasure, the Bekenstein bound, and Caratheodory's view of the Second Law of thermodynamics.
  • Includes an explanation of the basic rules of quantum mechanics as well as the more advanced topics of mixed states and completely positive maps.
  • Includes an introduction to classical information theory.
