Quantum Information Put into Practice

  • Jean-Daniel BancalEmail author
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


Allowing information to be carried by physical systems described by the rules of quantum physics led to a deep questioning of the theory of information. While many questions remain open, the emerging field of quantum information already led to several remarkably concrete applications which would not exist otherwise.
