Book description

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.

Reviews

'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.'
