An introductory textbook for advanced students of physics and computer sciences that covers a rapidly expanding new area of physics. Topics include: Entanglement, quantum information and computation, generalized measurements, foundations of quantum theory.
Jurgen Audretsch studied physics at the Universities of Tubingen and Freiburg, Germany. In 1980, he was appointed to a professorship in theoretical physics at the University of Konstanz, Germany, where he still teaches. While putting a focus on research in general relativity and the quantum field theory in the past, he now concentrates on quantum optics and the quantum information theory. Professor Audretsch has published numerous articles in scientific journals and edited books. He is also the author of several popular science books.
