This monograph provides an introduction to the mathematical aspects of the theory of quantum information and open systems, with applications to various nano and bio systems.

It includes introductory material on functional analysis, probability theory, information theory, quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. Apart from standard material on quantum information, the authors discuss findings on quantum mutual entropy, space-time dependence of quantum entangled states, entangling operators, adaptive dynamics, relativistic quantum information, and a new paradigm for quantum computation beyond the usual quantum Turing machine. Also, important applications of information theory to genetics and life sciences, as well as recent experimental and theoretical discoveries in quantum photosynthesis are described.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

“The monograph under review concerns a mathematically rigorous approach to quantum information and computation. The authors provide necessary introductory material on functional analysis, probability theory, information theory and quantum mechanics. … The unique feature of the monograph is that the authors also describe the applications of information theory to genetics and other life sciences. … Very helpful for further study is the vast list of references, containing the most important articles and books on the subject.” (Lech Jakóbczyk, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012 c)
