Product description

Review

From the reviews

"Included among the more than 40 contributors are some of the subject¿s leading European practitioners¿ Topics are well balanced between presentations of the theory (dazzling in its ingenuity) and crude attempts at implementation (tours de force in technol9gy, but still a long way from non-trivial computational application)¿ ¿The Physics of Quantum Information¿ does convey a through and authoritative picture of the state of this fascinating futuristic art as we enter the 21st century."

- American Scientist

"This volume covers Quantum Cryptography Quantum Teleportation and Quantum Computation. The book presents clearly the fundamental concepts, amply illustrated with theoretical calculations and descriptions of experimental work. Consequently, this is a first-class primer, pitched at a level suitable for honours students or above.
The first section, dealing with Quantum Cryptography, discusses the possibility of secure exchange of key material via entangled states in quantum channels. The presentation makes it clear that quantum key exchange, using quantum indeterminacy to test for an eavesdropper, offers genuine security. The discussion of experimental realisations suggests that this will be a practical technology in the not too distant future.
The next chapter is on Quantum "teleportation", the transfer of a quantum state to an entangled system at another location. This chapter includes a discussion of a number of elegant experiments.
Much of the book is devoted to Quantum Computing. An introduction introduces the qubit (quantum bit) and quantum logic gates, followed by a very clear exposition of quantum algorithms, and their speed advantages over classical algorithms. The presentation then moves to the practicalities of building a quantum computer. Decoherence, a formidable challenge, is covered at length. There is a tendency in some writings to understate the difficulties that decoherence might present, but here the discussion is clear and balanced. The authors then move to potential solutions; quantum error correction and entanglement purification. Finally, this book has a very good index and an extensive bibliography. Unreservedly recommended, and deserving of a place in any Physics library."

"The best of these (multi-author works) so far is The Physics of Quantum Information edited by Dik Bouwmeester, Artur Ekert and Anton Zeilinger and published by Springer-Verlag. It is too much to expect that a multi-author book would present a coherent vision of a subject as young as this. The editors however have done an excellent job of stitching together a rewarding tapestry of the field as it stands today. (...) The Physics of Quantum Information is essential reading for anyone new to the field, particularly if they enter from the direction of quantum optics and atomic physics." Gerard J. Milburn, Australia; Quantum Information and Computation 1, 89-90 (2001)

From the Back Cover

Leading experts from The Physics of Quantum Information network, a European Commission initiative, bring together the most recent results from the emerging area of quantum technology. Written in a consistent style, the book introduces quantum cryptography, quantum teleportation, and quantum computation, considering both theory and the latest experiments. Thus scientists working in the field and advanced students will find it to be a rich source of information on this exciting new area.
