Item description for The Physics of Quantum Information: Quantum Cryptography, Quantum Teleportation, Quantum Computation by Dirk Bouwmeester...
"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 Physicist
The leading experts from "The Physics of Quantum Information" network, an initiative of the European Commission, bring together the most recent results of the emerging area of quantum technology. Written in a consistent style as a research monograph, the book introduces raders to quantum cryptography, quantum teleportation, and quantum computation, considering both theory and newest experiments. Thus scientists working in the field and advanced students will find a rich source of information on this exciting new area.

Excellent book on physics and ideas of Quantum Information Feb 23, 2004
Definitely one of the best books on PHYSICS of quantum information and this subject. If you are in the field of Quantum Information and Computing you probably know that it lies on intersection of Physics (Quantum Mechanics), Computer Science (Complexity and Algorithms, Cryptography) and Mathematics (Vector spaces, Linear Algebra, Number Theory...) This one is exceptional for physics of quantum information and also for describing all important ideas behind 'strange things' that exist in quantum mechanics. Authors have properly described all experiments and ideas on quantum information, quantum cryptography and teleportation. This book assumes that you have some knowledge on quantum mechanics or basic concepts about this subject. If you have mathematical background and you want to know how those thing are made physically, you will not regret for buying this book!
To learn it. Mar 4, 2003
You could use this book as a first if you have a general idea of basic concepts in quantum theory. It is a collection of very nicely written tutorials. They are done by authorities in the field, and cover the main trends. I especially liked Jozsa's chapter on quantum algorithms. By now there are also good textbooks that can get you started from scratch, such as Hirvensalo, or Nielsen-Chuang. If you have trouble getting hold the original journal articles, World Scientific just came out with a collection of major papers on quantum computation and quantum information, isbn 9810241178. It includes the full text [reprinted] of some of the papers which are cited in the present book; quite a few by the very same authors. That is a big help, as the papers in the subject are scattered and spread out over many different journals, and it might be hard to know where to start when logging into the arXiv.
A must have, for every mind traineed in sciences Jun 8, 2002
I read this books in all most 4 nites, and found it excellent to clear many dark concepts of quantum physics. I hardly recommended it to friends all over the world.
Excellent book on the Physics of Quantum Information Jul 5, 2000
I have heard about this book when I was attending a series of lectures in Cambridge related to this topic, and one of the speakers was D. Bouwmeester. A. Eckert and A. Zeilinger are quite well known names in quantum physics, and this is assures for the high quality of the book. The book is clear in form and complete in its contents and reflects the professionality of the people involved in this research topic. It starts from the basic concepts, and gives the reader a complete perspective on Quantum Cryptography and entanglement, then is discussed teleportation, computation, including a step towards the experimental set up. Environmental decoherence, purification of entanglement and quantum error correction are discussed in the last chapters.
Heck of a book Jun 14, 2000
What an awesome theory. Really makes you think about how the world actually works. Definite buy.
