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

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 Theory: Informational Foundations and Foils 
Author(s)  Chiribella, Giulio;Spekkens, Robert W 
Publication  Dordrecht, 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, 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  SoftwareBased Acoustical Measurements 
Author(s)  Miyara, Federico 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIX, 429 p. 150 illus., 7 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook provides a detailed introduction to the use of software in combination with simple and economical hardware (a sound level meter with calibrated AC output and a digital recording system) to obtain sophisticated measurements usually requiring expensive equipment. It emphasizes the use of free, open source, and multiplatform software. Many commercial acoustical measurement systems use software algorithms as an integral component; however the methods are not disclosed. This book enables the reader to develop useful algorithms and provides insight into the use of digital audio editing tools to document features in the signal. Topics covered include acoustical measurement principles, indepth critical study of uncertainty applied to acoustical measurements, digital signal processing from the basics, and metrologicallyoriented spectral and statistical analysis of signals. The student will gain a deep understanding of the use of software for measurement purposes; the ability to implement softwarebased measurement systems; familiarity with the hardware necessary to acquire and store signals; an appreciation for the key issue of longterm preservation of signals; and a full grasp of the often neglected issue of uncertainty in acoustical measurements. Pedagogical features include intext workedout examples, endofchapter problems, a glossary of metrology terms, and extensive appendices covering statistics, proofs, additional examples, file formats, and underlying theory. Provides a costeffective, primarily open source solution to obtaining and analyzing acoustical measurements Presents methods which are applicable to embedded systems running any system using free GPL software Equips readers with a deep understanding of the central challenges in acoustical measurements including a discussion of uncertainty Features comprehensive description of hardware, from the hard disk to flash memory, and from the digital recorder to the microphone and audiometric earphone Includes a chapter on testing hardware to ensure standard compliance

Title  Electronic Filters : Theory, Numerical Recipes, and Design Practice based on the RM Software 
Author(s)  Litovski, Van??o 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2019. 
Description  XVII, 437 p. 286 illus., 10 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a comprehensive overview of signal filtering, including an introduction, definitions of the terms and algorithms for numerical calculation of the properties of the transfer function in frequency and time domains. All the chapters discuss the theoretical background and explain the underlying algorithms including the iterative numerical procedures necessary to obtain the solutions. It starts by considering polynomial filters, offering a broad range of solutions and introducing critical monotonic passband amplitude characteristics (CMAC). It also describes modifications to the classical Chebyshev and elliptic filters to overcome their limitations. In the context linear phase lowpass prototypes, it presents filters approximating constant group delay in the equiripple manner for the first time. Further, it discusses new procedures to improve the selectivity of all polynomial filters by introducing transmission zeros, such as filters with multiple transmission zeros on the omega axis, as well as phase correction of selective filters for both lowpass and bandpass filters. Other topics explored include linear phase allpass (exhibiting lowpass group delay approximation) filters; allpass filters (exhibiting bandpass group delay approximation) with linear and parabolic phase synthesized directly as bandpass; highpass, and bandstop amplitude characteristic frequency transformations to produce bandpass; and direct synthesis of linear and parabolic phase selective bandpass filters synthesized directly as bandpass. Lastly, for system (physical) synthesis, the book describes the algorithms and procedures for the following: cascade passive LC; active cascade RC; active parallel RC (for the first time); active parallel SC; GmC based on LC prototypes; and parallel IIR based on bilinear transformation of analog prototypes. Every algorithm, be it in transfer function synthesis or in system synthesis, is accompanied by a proper nontrivial comprehensive example produced by the RM software

Title  Quantum Error Correction : Symmetric, Asymmetric, Synchronizable, and Convolutional Codes 
Author(s)  La Guardia, Giuliano Gadioli 
Publication  Cham, 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
