Special issue on foundations of quantum information Quantum Inf Process (2010) 9:93–94 DOI 10.1007/s11128-010-0174-1 Gregg Jaeger Received: 1 March 2010 / Accepted: 3 March 2010 / Published online: 13 March 2010 © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2010 Although it has been mainly during the last 15 years that the number of scientific investigations relating to quantum information has become great enough that Quantum Information Science (QIS) could be identified as a distinct field of research encom- passing quantum computing and cryptography, its roots can be seen as extending back to the early decades of quantum theory itself. That is, QIS can be viewed as resulting from the on-going study of fundamental questions in quantum mechanics, now often referred to as simply Quantum Foundations. It relates mechanics and information in the microscopic realm, offering new insights by connecting the concepts and con- straints of communications theory to information theory in a way that provides new methods for probing the elements of fundamental mechanics. It is to such probing of the implications of quantum correlations, measurements, and information theory that this Special Issue of Quantum Information Processing is devoted, focusing on foundational ones. Despite a tremendous increase in activity surrounding the technological aspects of quantum information and entanglement, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Quantum Information Processing Springer Journals
