"This volume covers Quantum Cryptography, Quantum Teleportation and Quantum Computation. The book presents clearly the fundamental concepts, amply illustrated with theoretical calculations and descriptions of experimental work. Consequently, this is a first-class primer, pitched at a level suitable for honours students or above."  The PhysicistThe leading experts from "The Physics of Quantum Information" network, an initiative of the European Commission, bring together the most recent results of the emerging area of quantum technology. Written in a consistent style as a research monograph, the book introduces raders to quantum cryptography, quantum teleportation, and quantum computation, considering both theory and newest experiments. Thus scientists working in the field and advanced students will find a rich source of information on this exciting new area.
