From the Back Cover:

This book is a comprehensive yet concise overview of quantum information science, which is a rapidly developing area of interdisciplinary investigation that now plays a significant role in physics, information technology and engineering. It is a handy reference for practitioners and students covering quantum mechanics, quantum key distribution, quantum computation and quantum communication, as well as explicating foundational issues of these topics. Specific protocols for quantum coding, quantum teleportation, quantum key distribution, quantum data compression and entanglement purification are discussed, as are quantum algorithms, including the Deutsch-Jozsa, Shor and Grover algorithms. Appendices on the mathematics of quantum information science and postulates of quantum mechanics are included. The book contains more than 25 illustrations that encapsulate essential ideas and fundamental constructs of quantum information science. The bibliography contains more than 400 articles from the literature of quantum mechanics and information science. Foreword by Prof. Tommaso Toffoli.

About the Author:

Dr. Jaeger is Associate Professor at Boston University. He research focus has been in quantum mechanics, particularly quantum computing, quantum cryptography, quantum metrology and the foundations of quantum mechanics. He was worked in academia and industry in the United States and Europe as a research director, theorist and experimentalist. He participated in the building of the world's first practical metropolitan area quantum cryptographic network, the DARPA Quantum Network Test-bed, as a member of the Quantum Imaging Laboratory (and more recently the Quantum Communication and Measurement Laboratory) with Boston University's Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the BU Photonics Center, along with colleagues at Harvard University and BBN Technologies.
