"Quantum information is a developing multi-disciplinary field, with many exciting links to white noise theory. This connection is explored and presented in this work, which effectively bridges the gap between quantum information theory and complex systems. Arising from the Meijo Winter School and International Conference, the lecture notes and research papers published in this timely volume will have a significant impact on the future development of the theories of quantum information and complexity. This book will be of interest to mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists as well as electrical engineers working in this field.
