Quantum information - the subject - is a new and exciting area of science, which brings together physics, information theory, computer science and mathematics. Quantum Information - the book - is based on two successful lecture courses given to advanced undergraduate and beginning postgraduatestudents in physics. The intention is to introduce readers at this level to the fundamental, but offer rather simple, ideas behind ground-breaking developments including quantum cryptography, teleportation and quantum computing. The text is necessarily rather mathematical in style, but themathematics nowhere allowed priority over the key physical ideas. My aim throughout was to be as complete and self- contained but to avoid, as far as possible, lengthy and formal mathematical proofs. Each of the eight chapters is followed by about forty exercise problems with which the reader cantest their understanding and hone their skills. These will also provide a valuable resource to tutors and lectures.
Stephen Barnett graduated with a BSc in physics from Imperial College London in 1982 and stayed at IC to study for his PhD under the supervision of Peter Knight, graduating in 1985. He held personal Research Fellowships at Imperial College, Harwell and Wolfson College Oxford and at Somerville College Oxford, where he taught Engineerin...
