DESCRIPTION

Finally, here is a modern, self-contained text on quantum information theory suitable for graduate-level courses. Developing the subject 'from the ground up' it covers classical results as well as major advances of the past decade, such as superadditivity of private, coherent and Holevo information, and the superactivation of quantum capacity.
