Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Information: A Guide through the Quantum World

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, May 28, 2013 - Science - 860 pages
Alongside a thorough definition of basic concepts and their interrelations, backed by numerous examples, this textbook features a rare discussion of quantum mechanics and information theory combined in one text. It deals with important topics hardly found in regular textbooks, including the Robertson-Schrodinger relation, incompatibility between angle and angular momentum, "dispersed indeterminacy", interaction-free measurements, "submissive quantum mechanics", and many others. With its in-depth discussion of key concepts complete with problems and exercises, this book is poised to become the standard textbook for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate quantum mechanics courses and an essential reference for physics students and physics professionals.

About the author (2013)

Moses Fayngold graduated from the State University of Samarkand and got his PhD at the Nuclear Research Institute of Academy of Science in Uzbekistan (former USSR). He has combined teaching and research in colleges of USSR and USA, most recently as a Senior University Lecturer at the Physics Department of the New Jersey Institute of Technology. He has lectured on Quantum Mechanics and Special Relativity to both undergraduate and graduate students. His research interests and areas of activity include Special and General Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, Optics and optical imaging, particle scattering and propagation in periodic structures.

Vadim Fayngold holds two degrees - M.S. in Physics and B.S. in Computer Science. While working as a research assistant at the Department of Computer Engineering (Polytechnic University, New York), he focused on computer simulation of complex processes in fluid dynamics. The combined expertise he developed there has spurred his interest in the Quantum Information theory. Vadim came to the idea of writing this book while working on computer animations of various relativistic and quantum-mechanical phenomena.
