Description  XV, 291 p. 122 illus., 103 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Nearinfrared astronomy has become one of the most rapidly developing branches in modern astrophysics. Innovative observing techniques, nearinfrared detectors with quantum efficiencies in excess of 90%, highly specialised instruments as well as advanced data reduction techniques have allowed major breakthroughs in various areas like exoplanets, starforming regions, the supermassive black hole in the Galactic center, and the highredshift Universe. In this book, the reader will be introduced to the basic concepts of how to prepare nearinfrared observations with maximized scientific return. Equal weight is given to all aspects of the data reduction for both  imaging and spectroscopy. Information is also provided on the state of the art instrumentation available and planned, on detector technology or the physics of the atmosphere, all of which influence the preparation and execution of observations and data reduction techniques. The beginner but also the expert will find a lot of information in compact form which is otherwise widely dispersed across the internet or other sources

Title  A Quantum Computation Workbook 
Author(s)  Choi, MahnSoo 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  X, 436 p. 135 illus., 31 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Teaching quantum computation and information is notoriously difficult, because it requires covering subjects from various fields of science, organizing these subjects consistently in a unified way despite their tendency to favor their specific languages, and overcoming the subjects??? abstract and theoretical natures, which offer few examples of actual realizations. In this book, we have organized all the subjects required to understand the principles of quantum computation and information processing in a manner suited to physics, mathematics, and engineering courses as early as undergraduate studies.In addition, we provide a supporting package of quantum simulation software from Wolfram Mathematica, specialists in symbolic calculation software. Throughout the book???s main text, demonstrations are provided that use the software package, allowing the students to deepen their understanding of each subject through selfpractice. Readers can change the code so as to experiment with their own ideas and contemplate possible applications. The information in this book reflects many years of experience teaching quantum computation and information. The quantum simulationbased demonstrations and the unified organization of the subjects are both timetested and have received very positive responses from the students who have experienced them

Title  Information Dynamics : In Classical and Quantum Systems 
Author(s)  Dittrich, Thomas 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XV, 557 p. 195 illus., 124 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This wideranging book introduces information as a key concept not only in physics, from quantum mechanics to thermodynamics, but also in the neighboring sciences and in the humanities. The central part analyzes dynamical processes as manifestations of information flows between microscopic and macroscopic scales and between systems and their environment. Quantum mechanics is interpreted as a reconstruction of mechanics based on fundamental limitations of information processing on the smallest scales. These become particularly manifest in quantum chaos and in quantum computing. Covering subjects such as causality, prediction, undecidability, chaos, and quantum randomness, the book also provides an informationtheoretical view of predictability. More than 180 illustrations visualize the concepts and arguments. The book takes inspiration from the author's graduatelevel topical lecture but is also well suited for undergraduate studies and is a valuable resource for researchers and professionals

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

Several chapters on experimental implementations of quantum information protocols have been added: implementations using neutral atoms, trapped ions, optics, and solidstate systems are each presented in its own chapter. Previous chapters on entanglement, quantum measurements, quantum dynamics, quantum cryptography, and quantum algorithms have been thoroughly updated, and new additions include chapters on the stabilizer formalism and the GottesmanKnill theorem as well as aspects of classical and quantum information theory. To facilitate learning, each chapter starts with a clear motivation to the topic and closes with exercises and a recommended reading list. Quantum Information Processing: Theory and Implementation will be essential to graduate students studying quantum information as well as and researchers in other areas of physics who wish to gain knowledge in the field.

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
