Holevo Quantum information theory, the emergence of which traces back to the second half of the past century, is reaching the age of maturity. The past decade was marked with outstanding theoretical achievements, just to mention the proofs of equivalence of different forms of the additivity conjecture and of the coding theorem for quantum capacity. There is vast journal literature on the subject and even larger one on quant-ph. Several books summarizing different aspects of quantum information and com- putation science appeared or are going to appear recently. Among them the book of Masahito Hayashi can be described as one devoted essen- tially to quantum information theory as a self-contained mathematical dis- cipline distinct from quantum computation and cryptography. There is a number of excellent texts both published and unpublished starting perhaps with famous J. Preskill’s lecture notes and the fundamental treatise by M. Nielsen and I. Chuang, written by theoretical physicists and/or com- puter scientists and targeted to applications in quantum computation and cryptography, in which however quantum information theory is not con- sidered as a separate mathematical subject (unlike http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Quantum Information Processing Springer Journals
