Inhaltsangabe: 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 book would make an excellent text for an upper division graduate course in Electrical Engineering that might run one or two semesters. Meaningful problems, with a range of difficulty, are provided (answers are available from the publisher). The format and style of the book also make it a great choice for self-study. I recommend it highly.' Ivan P. Kaminow, University of California, Berkeley
'The most interesting presentation on quantum cryptography I have read. I really enjoyed reading the book and learned a lot. I am confident that readers will discover an original and interesting viewpoint on information theory.' Ivan Favero, Université Paris Diderot - CNRS
'The entire work is well and clearly presented with a mathematical background, and can be a good handbook for those which study the quantum information theory domain.' Zentralblatt MATH

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
