# Geometry of quantum states : an introduction to quantum entanglement

##### By: Bengtsson, Ingemar.

##### Contributor(s): Zyczkowski, Karol.

Publisher: Cambridge Cambridge University Press 2017Edition: 2nd ed.Description: xv, 619p.ISBN: 9781107026254.Subject(s): Quantum theory | Quantum entanglementDDC classification: 530.12 | B436g2 Summary: Quantum information theory is a branch of science at the frontier of physics, mathematics, and information science, and offers a variety of solutions that are impossible using classical theory. This book provides a detailed introduction to the key concepts used in processing quantum information and reveals that quantum mechanics is a generalisation of classical probability theory. The second edition contains new sections and entirely new chapters: the hot topic of multipartite entanglement; in-depth discussion of the discrete structures in finite dimensional Hilbert space, including unitary operator bases, mutually unbiased bases, symmetric informationally complete generalized measurements, discrete Wigner function, and unitary designs; the Gleason and Kochen–Specker theorems; the proof of the Lieb conjecture; the measure concentration phenomenon; and the Hastings' non-additivity theorem. This richly-illustrated book will be useful to a broad audience of graduates and researchers interested in quantum information theory. Exercises follow each chapter, with hints and answers supplied.Item type | Current location | Collection | Call number | Status | Date due | Barcode | Item holds |
