Quantum processes, systems, and information

By: Schumacher, Benjamin.
Contributor(s): Westmoreland, Michael D.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Cambridge Cambridge University Press 2010Description: xi, 469p.ISBN: 9780521875349.Subject(s): Quantum theoryDDC classification: 530.12 | Sch86q Summary: A new and exciting approach to the basics of quantum theory, this undergraduate textbook contains extensive discussions of conceptual puzzles and over 800 exercises and problems. Beginning with three elementary 'qubit' systems, the book develops the formalism of quantum theory, addresses questions of measurement and distinguishability, and explores the dynamics of quantum systems. In addition to the standard topics covered in other textbooks, it also covers communication and measurement, quantum entanglement, entropy and thermodynamics, and quantum information processing. This textbook gives a broad view of quantum theory by emphasizing dynamical evolution, and exploring conceptual and foundational issues. It focuses on contemporary topics, including measurement, time evolution, open systems, quantum entanglement, and the role of information.
