Author(s)  Wolf, Ramona 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XI, 229 p. 56 illus., 31 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook introduces the nonspecialist reader to the concepts of quantum key distribution and presents an overview of stateoftheart quantum communication protocols and applications. The field of quantum cryptography has advanced rapidly in the previous years, not least because with the age of quantum computing drawing closer, traditional encryption methods are at risk. The textbook presents the necessary mathematical tools without assuming much background, making it accessible to readers without experience in quantum information theory. In particular, the topic of classical and quantum entropies is presented in great detail. Furthermore, the author discusses the different types of quantum key distribution protocols and explains several tools for proving the security of these protocols. In addition, a number of applications of quantum key distribution are discussed, demonstrating its value to stateoftheart cryptography and communication. This book leads the reader through the mathematical background with a variety of workedout examples and exercises. It is primarily targeted at graduate students and advanced undergraduates in theoretical physics. The presented material is largely selfcontained and only basic knowledge in quantum mechanics and linear algebra is required

Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  VI, 316 p. 64 illus., 54 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Do you know how banking and money will look like in the new digital age? This book collects the voices of leading scholars, entrepreneurs, policy makers and consultants who, through their expertise and keen analytical skills, are best positioned to picture from various angles the ongoing technological revolution in banking and finance. You will learn how lending and borrowing can exist without banks; how new forms of money can compete to better serve different society needs; how new technologies are banking the unbanked communities in the poorest parts of the world, and how ideas and small projects can be financed by the crowds without the need to rely upon banks. You will learn how, in the new digital age, we will interact with new selforganised and autonomous companies that operate without any human involvement, based on a set of programmed and incorruptible rules. You will learn that new business models will emerge thanks to technologyenabled platforms, upon which one can build new forms of nonhierarchical cooperation between strangers. And you will also learn that new forms of risks and threats are emerging that will destabilise our systems and jeopardise the stability of our financial order

Title  Bursty Human Dynamics 
Author(s)  Karsai, M??rton;Jo, HangHyun;Kaski, Kimmo 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XVI, 121 p. 17 illus., 16 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a comprehensive overview on emergent bursty patterns in the dynamics of human behaviour. It presents common and alternative understanding of the investigated phenomena, and points out open questions worthy of further investigations. The book is structured as follows. In the introduction the authors discuss the motivation of the field, describe bursty phenomena in case of human behaviour, and relate it to other disciplines. The second chapter addresses the measures commonly used to characterise heterogeneous signals, bursty human dynamics, temporal paths, and correlated behaviour. These definitions are first introduced to set the basis for the discussion of the third chapter about the observations of bursty human patterns in the dynamics of individuals, dyadic interactions, and collective behaviour. The subsequent fourth chapter discusses the models of bursty human dynamics. Various mechanisms have been proposed about the source of the heterogeneities in human dynamics, which leads to the introduction of conceptually different modelling approaches. The authors address all of these perspectives objectively, highlight their strengths and shortcomings, and??mention possible extensions to them. The fifth chapter addresses the effect of individual heterogeneous behaviour on collective dynamics. This question in particular has been investigated in various systems including spreading phenomena, random walks, and opinion formation dynamics. Here the main issues are whether burstiness speeds up or slows down the coevolving processes, and how burstiness modifies timedependent paths in the system that determine the spreading patterns of any kind of information or influence. Finally in the sixth chapter the authors end the review with a discussion and future perspectives. It is an ideal book for researchers and students who wish to enter the field of bursty human dynamics or want to expand their knowledge on such phenomena

Title  Quantum Information Theory : Mathematical Foundation 
Author(s)  Hayashi, Masahito 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2017. 
Description  XLIII, 636 p. 24 illus., 1 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This graduate textbook provides a unified view of quantum information theory. Clearly explaining the necessary mathematical basis, it merges key topics from both informationtheoretic and quantum mechanical viewpoints and provides lucid explanations of the basic results. Thanks to this unified approach, it makes accessible such advanced topics in quantum communication as quantum teleportation, superdense coding, quantum state transmission (quantum errorcorrection) and quantum encryption. Since the publication of the preceding book Quantum Information: An Introduction, there have been tremendous strides in the field of quantum information. In particular, the following topics ??? all of which are addressed here ??? made seen major advances: quantum state discrimination, quantum channel capacity, bipartite and multipartite entanglement, security analysis on quantum communication, reverse Shannon theorem and uncertainty relation. With regard to the analysis of quantum security, the present book employs an improved method for the evaluation of leaked information and identifies a remarkable relation between quantum security and quantum coherence. Taken together, these two improvements allow a better analysis of quantum state transmission. In addition, various types of the newly discovered uncertainty relation are explained. Presenting a wealth of new developments, the book introduces readers to the latest advances and challenges in quantum information. To aid in understanding, each chapter is accompanied by a set of exercises and solutions

Title  Quantum Random Number Generation : Theory and Practice 
Author(s)  Kollmitzer, Christian;Schauer, Stefan;Rass, Stefan;Rainer, Benjamin 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XXI, 120 p. 49 illus., 33 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides an overview of stateoftheart implementations of quantum random number generators (QRNGs), and especially examines their relation to classical statistical randomness models and numerical techniques for computing random numbers. The reader ??? who ideally has a background in classical statistics, computer science, or cryptography ??? is introduced to the world of quantum bits step by step, and explicit relations between QRNGs and their classical counterparts are identified along the way. Random number generation is a major pillar of cryptography. Capitalizing on the randomness inherent in quantum phenomena is a rapidly evolving branch of quantum cryptography with countless applications for the future. The value of quantum randomness for cryptographic purposes is empirically demonstrated in statistical evaluations of QRNGs??? performance compared to classical techniques for true and pseudorandom number generation. The book then provides an overview of technical implementations of QRNGs, before a concluding discussion of major achievements and remaining obstacles in the field rounds out the coverage, while also opening the door for future research directions

Title  Quantum Information Processing with Finite Resources : Mathematical Foundations 
Author(s)  Tomamichel, Marco 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  IX, 138 p. 4 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides the reader with the mathematical framework required to fully explore the potential of small quantum information processing devices. As decoherence will continue to limit their size, it is essential to master the conceptual tools which make such investigation possible. A strong emphasis is given to information measures that are essential for the study of devices of finite size, including R??nyi entropies and smooth entropies. The presentation is selfcontained and includes rigorous and concise proofs of the most important properties of these measures. The first chapters will introduce the formalism of quantum mechanics, with particular emphasis on norms and metrics for quantum states. This is necessary to explore quantum generalizations of R??nyi divergence and conditional entropy, information measures that lie at the core of information theory. The smooth entropy framework is discussed next and provides a natural means to lift many arguments from information theory to the quantum setting. Finally selected applications of the theory to statistics and cryptography are discussed. The book is aimed at graduate students in Physics and Information Theory. Mathematical fluency is necessary, but no prior knowledge of quantum theory is required
