Item description for Quantum Information: An Introduction by Masahito Hayashi...
Recently, quantum information theory has been developing through a fusion of results from various research fields. This requires that understanding of basic results on diverse topics, and derived from different disciplinary perspectives, is required for appreciating the overall picture. Intended to merge key topics from both the information-theoretic and quantum- mechanical viewpoints, this graduate-level textbook provides a unified viewpoint of quantum information theory and lucid explanations of those basic results, so that the reader fundamentally grasps advances and challenges. For example, advanced topics in quantum communication such as quantum teleportation, superdense coding, quantum state transmission (quantum error-correction), and quantum encryption especially benefit from this unified approach. Unlike earlier treatments, the text requires knowledge of only linear algebra, probability theory, and quantum mechanics, while it treats the topics of quantum hypothesis testing and the discrimination of quantum states, and quantum channel coding (message transmission) with the minimal amount of math needed to convey their essence. Solving the more than 240 exercises provides readers with practice that not only enriches their knowledge of quantum information theory, but also can equip them with the techniques necessary for pursuing their own research in this field.

Reviews - What do customers think about Quantum Information: An Introduction?
Save your money Jan 5, 2008
This text is mathematically and analytically dense, but for no good reason. In addition, it seems the author cannot be bothered by providing any type of motivation. The author meanders in his presentation, as well, with no discernible final goal or objective. The result is a manuscript that is utterly unreadable. Save your money.
Not an introduction at all, but very impressive Nov 10, 2006
This book is an apparently very good translation from a previous Japanese version. It is packed with extremely technical results perhaps not available elsewhere. The title is rather deceptive. It is not by any means an introduction to the topic.
