Title  Quantum Theory: Informational Foundations and Foils 
Author(s)  Chiribella, Giulio;Spekkens, Robert W 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 2016. 
Description  VI, 528 p. 55 illus., 28 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides the first unified overview of the burgeoning research area at the interface between Quantum Foundations and Quantum Information.?? Topics include: operational alternatives to quantum theory, informationtheoretic reconstructions of the quantum formalism, mathematical frameworks for operational theories, and deviceindependent features of the set of quantum correlations. Powered by the injection of fresh ideas from the field of Quantum Information and Computation, the foundations of Quantum Mechanics are in the midst of a renaissance. The last two decades have seen an explosion of new results and research directions, attracting broad interest in the scientific community. The variety and number of different approaches, however, makes it challenging for a newcomer to obtain a big picture of the field and of its highlevel goals. Here, fourteen original contributions from leading experts in the field cover some of the most promising research directions that have emerged in the new wave of quantum foundations. The book is directed at researchers in physics, computer science, and mathematics and would be appropriate as the basis of a graduate course in Quantum Foundations

Title  Generalized Statistical Thermodynamics : Thermodynamics of Probability Distributions and Stochastic Processes 
Author(s)  Matsoukas, Themis 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XXI, 363 p. 57 illus., 55 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book gives the definitive mathematical answer to what thermodynamics really is: a variational calculus applied to probability distributions. Extending Gibbs's notion of ensemble, the Author imagines the ensemble of all possible probability distributions and assigns probabilities to them by selection rules that are fairly general. The calculus of the most probable distribution in the ensemble produces the entire network of mathematical relationships we recognize as thermodynamics. The first part of the book develops the theory for discrete and continuous distributions while the second part applies this thermodynamic calculus to problems in population balance theory and shows how the emergence of a giant component in aggregation, and the shattering transition in fragmentation may be treated as formal phase transitions. While the book is intended as a research monograph, the material is selfcontained and the style sufficiently tutorial to be accessible for selfpaced study by an advanced graduate student in such fields as physics, chemistry, and engineering

Title  Quantum Error Correction : Symmetric, Asymmetric, Synchronizable, and Convolutional Codes 
Author(s)  La Guardia, Giuliano Gadioli 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XIII, 227 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This text presents an algebraic approach to the construction of several important families of quantum codes derived from classical codes by applying the wellknown CalderbankShorSteane (CSS) construction, the Hermitian, and the Steane???s enlargement construction to certain classes of classical codes. These quantum codes have good parameters and have been introduced recently in the literature. In addition, the book presents families of asymmetric quantum codes with good parameters and provides a detailed description of the procedures adopted to construct families of asymmetric quantum convolutional codes. Featuring accessible language and clear explanations, the book is suitable for use in advanced undergraduate and graduate courses as well as for selfguided study and reference. It provides an expert introduction to algebraic techniques of code construction and, because all of the constructions are performed algebraically, it equips the reader to construct families of codes, rather than only codes with specific parameters. The text offers an abundance of worked examples, exercises, and openended problems to motivate the reader to further investigate this rich area of inquiry. Endofchapter summaries and a glossary of key terms allow for easy review and reference

Title  Information Theory and Quantum Physics : Physical Foundations for Understanding the Conscious Process 
Author(s)  Green, Herbert S 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2000. 
Description  IX, 244 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  In this book, H. S. Green, a former student of Max Born and well known as an author in physics and in philosophy of science, presents an individual and modern approach to theoretical physics and related fundamental problems. Starting from first principles, the links between physics and information science are unveiled step by step: modern information theory and the classical theory of the Turing machine are combined to create a new interpretation of quantum computability, which is then applied to field theory, gravitation and submicroscopic measurement theory and culminates in a detailed examination of the role of the conscious observer in physical measurements. The result is a highly readable book that unifies a wide range of scientific knowledge and is essential reading for all scientists and philosophers of science interested in the interpretation and the implications of the interaction between information science and basic physical theories

Title  Maximum Entropy, Information Without Probability and Complex Fractals : Classical and Quantum Approach 
Author(s)  Jumarie, Guy 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 2000. 
Description  XIX, 270 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Every thought is a throw of dice. Stephane Mallarme This book is the last one of a trilogy which reports a part of our research work over nearly thirty years (we discard our nonconventional results in automatic control theory and applications on the one hand, and fuzzy sets on the other), and its main key words are Information Theory, Entropy, Maximum Entropy Principle, Linguistics, Thermodynamics, Quantum Mechanics, Fractals, Fractional Brownian Motion, Stochastic Differential Equations of Order n, Stochastic Optimal Control, Computer Vision. Our obsession has been always the same: Shannon's information theory should play a basic role in the foundations of sciences, but subject to the condition that it be suitably generalized to allow us to deal with problems which are not necessarily related to communication engineering. With this objective in mind, two questions are of utmost importance: (i) How can we introduce meaning or significance of information in Shannon's information theory? (ii) How can we define and/or measure the amount of information involved in a form or a pattern without using a probabilistic scheme? It is obligatory to find suitable answers to these problems if we want to apply Shannon's theory to science with some chance of success. For instance, its use in biology has been very disappointing, for the very reason that the meaning of information is there of basic importance, and is not involved in this approach

Title  Beyond Fear : Thinking Sensibly About Security in an Uncertain World 
Author(s)  Schneier, Bruce 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Copernicus
2. Springer New York, 2003. 
Description  VIII, 296 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Many of us, especially since 9/11, have become personally concerned about issues of security, and this is no surprise. Security is near the top of government and corporate agendas around the globe. Securityrelated stories appear on the front page everyday. How well though, do any of us truly understand what achieving real security involves? In Beyond Fear, Bruce Schneier invites us to take a critical look at not just the threats to our security, but the ways in which we're encouraged to think about security by law enforcement agencies, businesses of all shapes and sizes, and our national governments and militaries. Schneier believes we all can and should be better security consumers, and that the tradeoffs we make in the name of security  in terms of cash outlays, taxes, inconvenience, and diminished freedoms  should be part of an ongoing negotiation in our personal, professional, and civic lives, and the subject of an open and informed national discussion. With a welldeserved reputation for original and sometimes iconoclastic thought, Schneier has a lot to say that is provocative, counterintuitive, and just plain good sense. He explains in detail, for example, why we need to design security systems that don't just work well, but fail well, and why secrecy on the part of government often undermines security. He also believes, for instance, that national ID cards are an exceptionally bad idea: technically unsound, and even destructive of security. And, contrary to a lot of current naysayers, he thinks online shopping is fundamentally safe, and that many of the new airline security measure (though by no means all) are actually quite effective. A skeptic of much that's promised by highly touted technologies like biometrics, Schneier is also a refreshingly positive, problemsolving force in the often selfdramatizing and fearmongering world of security pundits. Schneier helps the reader to understand the issues at stake, and how to best come to one's own conclusions, including the vast infrastructure we already have in place, and the vaster systemssome useful, others useless or worsethat we're being asked to submit to and pay for. Bruce Schneier is the author of seven books, including Applied Cryptography (which Wired called "the one book the National Security Agency wanted never to be published") and Secrets and Lies (described in Fortune as "startlingly lively...[a] jewel box of little surprises you can actually use."). He is also Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Counterpane Internet Security, Inc., and publishes CryptoGram, one of the most widely read newsletters in the field of online security

Title  Number Theory in Science and Communication : With Applications in Cryptography, Physics, Digital Information, Computing, and SelfSimilarity 
Author(s)  Schroeder, M.R 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2006. 
Description  XXVI, 367 p. 99 illus., 4 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  "Number Theory in Science and Communication" is a wellknown introduction for nonmathematicians to this fascinating and useful branch of applied mathematics . It stresses intuitive understanding rather than abstract theory and highlights important concepts such as continued fractions, the golden ratio, quadratic residues and Chinese remainders, trapdoor functions, pseudoprimes and primitive elements. Their applications to problems in the real world are one of the main themes of the book. This revised fourth edition is augmented by recent advances in primes in progressions, twin primes, prime triplets, prime quadruplets and quintruplets, factoring with elliptic curves, quantum factoring, Golomb rulers and "baroque" integers. From reviews of earlier editions ??? "I continue to find [Schroeder???s] Number Theory a goldmine of valuable information. It is a marvellous book, in touch with the most recent applications of number theory and written with great clarity and humor.??? Philip Morrison (Scientific American) "A lighthearted and readable volume with a wide range of applications to which the author has been a productive contributor ??? useful mathematics outside the formalities of theorem and proof."
