Title:Integrated Devices for Quantum Information with Polarization Encoded Qubits [electronic resource]
Author(s): Linda Sansoni
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Quantum information science has found great experimental successby exploitingsingle photons. To date, however, the majority of quantum optical experiments use large-scale (bulk) optical elements bolted down to an opticalbench, an approach that ultima tely limits the complexity and stability of the quantum circuits required for quantum science and technology. The realization of complex optical schemes involving large numbers of elements requires theintroduction of waveguide technology to achieve the de sired scalability, stability and miniaturization of the device. This thesis reports on surprising findings in the field of integrated devices for quantum information. Here thepolarization of the photon is shown to offer a suitable degree of freedom for en coding quantum information in integrated systems. The most important results concern: the quantum interference of polarization entangled photons in anon-chip directional coupler the realization of a Controlled-NOT (CNOT) gate operating with polarization q ubits the realization of a quantum walk of bosons and fermions in an ordered optical lattice and the quantum simulation ofAnderson localization of bosons and fermions simulated by polarization entangled photons in a disordered quantum walk. The findings p resented in this thesis represent an important step towards the integration of a complete quantumphotonic experiment in a chip

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:R for Business Analytics looks at some of the most common tasks performed by business analysts and helps the user navigate the wealth of information in R and its 4000 packages. With this information the reader can select thepackages that can help pro cess the analytical tasks with minimum effort and maximum usefulness. The use of Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) is emphasized in this book to further cut downand bend the famous learning curve in learningR. This book is aimed to help you kick-start with analytics including chapters on data visualization, code examples on web analytics and social media analytics, clustering, regression models, text mining, data mining models andforecasting. The book tries to expose the reader to a breadth of business anal ytics topics without burying the user in needless depth. The included references and links allow the reader to pursue business analytics topics. Thisbook is aimed at business analysts with basic programming skills for using R for Business Analytics. Note the scope of the book is neither statistical theory nor graduate level research for statistics, but rather it is for businessanalytics practitioners. Business analytics (BA) refers to the field ofexploration and investigation of data generated by busines ses. Business Intelligence (BI) is the seamless dissemination of information through the organization,which primarily involves business metrics both past and current for the use of decision support in businesses. Data Mining (DM) is the process of discove ring new patterns from large data using algorithms and statistical methods. Todifferentiate between the three, BI is mostly current reports, BA is models to predict and strategizeand DM matches patterns in big data. The R statistical software is the faste st growing analytics platform in the world, and isestablished in both academia and corporations for robustness, reliability and accuracy.

Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book offers a new approach to information theory that is more general then the classical approach by Shannon. The classical definition of information is given for an alphabet of symbols or for a set of mutually exclusivepropositions (a partition of the probability space ) with corresponding probabilities adding up to 1. The new definition is given for an arbitrary cover of , i.e. for a set of possibly overlapping propositions. The generalizedinformation concept is called novelty and it is accompa nied by two new concepts derived from it, designated as information and surprise, which describe opposite versions of novelty, information being related more to classicalinformation theory and surprise being related more to the classical concept of statis tical significance. In the discussion of these three concepts and their interrelations several properties or classes of covers are defined, which turnout to be lattices. The book also presents applications of these new concepts, mostly in statistics and i n neuroscience

Title:Stochastic Models, Information Theory, and Lie Groups, Volume 2 [electronic resource] : Analytic Methods and Modern Applications
Author(s): Gregory S Chirikjian
Date:2012
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The subjects of stochastic processes, information theory, and Lie groups are usually treated separately from each other. This unique two-volume set presents these topics in a unified setting, thereby building bridges betweenfields that are rarely stu died by the same people. Unlike the many excellent formal treatments available for each of these subjects individually, the emphasis in both of these volumes is on the use of stochastic, geometric, andgroup-theoretic concepts in the modeling of physical p henomena. Volume 1 establishes the geometric and statistical foundations required to understand the fundamentals of continuous-time stochastic processes, differential geometry, andthe probabilistic foundations of information theory. Volume 2 delves deeper into relationships between these topics, including stochastic geometry, geometric aspects of the theory of communications and coding, multivariate statisticalanalysis, and error propagation on Lie groups. Key features and topics of Volume 2: * The author reviews the concept ofandfunctions and integration onLie groups with many concrete examples. * Extensive exercises andmotivating examples make the work suitable as a textbook for use in courses that emphasize applied stochastic processes on Lie groups or geometric aspects of probability and statistics. *Specific application areas are explored,including biomolecular statistical mechanics and information-driven motion in robotics. * The concrete presentation style makes it easy for readers to obtain numeri cal solutions for their own problems the emphasis is on how tocalculate quantities rather than how to prove theorems. * Modern problems at the interface of mechanics, control theory, and communications are handled in a unified framework and multiple direc tions for future research are explored.Stochastic Models, Information Theory, and Lie Groups will be of interest to advanced undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, and practition

Note:For over a decade, complex networks have steadily grown as an important tool across abroad array of academic disciplines, with applications ranging from physics to social media.A tightly organizedcollectionofcarefully-selected papers on the subject, Towards an Information Theory of Complex Networks: Statistical Methods and Applications presents theoretical and practical results about information-theoretic and statisticalmodels of complex networks in the natural sciences and humanities.The book'smajor goal is to advocate and promote a combination of graph-theoretic, information-theoretic, and statistical methods as a way to better understand andcharacterize real-world networks. This volume is the first to present a self-contained, comprehensive overvi ew of information-theoretic modelsof complex networks with an emphasis on applications. It begins with four chaptersdeveloping the most significant formal-theoretical issues of network modeling,butthe majority of the book is devoted tocombining theoretica l results with an empirical analysis of real networks. Specific topics include: chemicalgraph theory ecosystem interaction dynamics social ontologies language networks software systems Thiswork marks a first step toward establishing advanced statistical i nformation theory as a unified theoretical basis of complexnetworksfor allscientific disciplines. As such, itcan serve asa valuable resource foradiverse audience of advanced students and professional scientists.It is primarilyintendedas a reference for re search, but couldalso be a useful supplemental graduate text in courses related to information science, graph theory, machine learning, and computational biology, among others

Note:This multi-authored textbook addresses graduate students with a background in physics, mathematics or computer science. No research experience is necessary. Consequently, rather than comprehensively reviewing the vast body ofknowledge and literature gathered in the past twenty years, this book concentrates on a number of carefully selected aspects of quantum information theory and technology. Given the highly interdisciplinary nature of the subject, themulti-authored approach brings together differen t points of view from various renowned experts, providing a coherent picture of the subject matter. The book consists of ten chapters and includes examples, problems, and exercises. Thefirst five present the mathematical tools required for a full comprehe nsion of various aspects of quantum mechanics, classical information, and coding theory. Chapter 6 deals with the manipulation and transmission of information in thequantum realm. Chapters 7 and 8 discuss experimental implementations of quantum informatio n ideas using photons and atoms. Finally, chapters 9 and 10 address ground-breaking applications in cryptography and computation

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Dr. Bernard H. Lavenda has written A New Perspective on Thermodynamics to combine an old look at thermodynamics with a new foundation. The book presents a historical perspective, which unravels the current presentation ofthermodynamics found in stand ard texts, and which emphasizes the fundamental role that Carnot played in the development of thermodynamics. A New Perspective on Thermodynamics will: Chronologically unravel the development of theprinciples of thermodynamics and how they were conceived by their discoverers Bring the theory of thermodynamics up to the present time and indicate areas of further development with the union of information theory and the theory ofmeans and their inequalities. New areas include nonextensive thermodynamics, the thermodynamics of coding theory, multifractals, and strange attractors. Reintroduce important, yet nearly forgotten, teachings of N.L. Sardi CarnotHighlight conceptual flaws in timely topics such as endoreversible engines, finite-time thermodynamics, geo metrization of thermodynamics, and nonequilibrium work from equilibrium free energy differences. Dr. Bernard H. Lavenda isProfessor of Physical Chemistry at Universita degli Studi di Camerino, Italy. He is recipient of the 2009 Telesio-Galeli Prize in Phy sics for his work on irreversible thermodynamics

Note:Coding theory and cryptography allow secure and reliable data transmission, which is at the heart of modern communication. Nowadays, it is hard to find an electronic device without some code inside. Grbner bases have emerged asthe main tool in comput ational algebra, permitting numerous applications, both in theoretical contexts and in practical situations. This book is the first book ever giving a comprehensive overview on the application of commutativealgebra to coding theory and cryptography. For e xample, all important properties of algebraic/geometric coding systems (including encoding, construction, decoding, list decoding) are individually analysed, reporting all significantapproaches appeared in the literature. Also, stream ciphers, PK cryptogr aphy, symmetric cryptography and Polly Cracker systems deserve each a separate chapter, where all the relevant literature is reported and compared. While manyshort notes hint at new exciting directions, the reader will find that all chapters fit nicely wi thin a unified notation

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book Entropy and Information deals with the thermodynamical concept of entropy and its relationship to information theory. It is successful in explaining the universality of the term Entropy not only as a physicalphenomenon, but reveals its exist ence also in other domains. E.g., Volkenstein discusses the meaning of entropy in a biological context and shows how entropy is related to artistic activities. Written by the renowned Russianbio-physicist Mikhail V. Volkenstein, this book on Entropy and I nformation surely serves as a timely introduction to understand entropy from a thermodynamic perspective and is definitely an inspiring and thought-provoking book thatshould be read by every physicist, information-theorist, biologist, and even artist

Title:Stochastic Models, Information Theory, and Lie Groups, Volume 1 [electronic resource] : Classical Results and Geometric Methods
Author(s): Gregory S Chirikjian
Date:2009
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The subjects of stochastic processes, information theory, and Lie groups are usually treated separately from each other. This unique two-volumeset presents these topics in a unified setting, thereby building bridges betweenfields that are rarely stud ied by the same people. Unlike the many excellent formal treatments available for each of these subjects individually, the emphasis in both of these volumes is on the use of stochastic, geometric, andgroup-theoretic concepts in the modeling of physical ph enomena. Volume 1 establishes the geometric and statistical foundations required to understand the fundamentals of continuous-time stochastic processes, differential geometry, andthe probabilistic foundations of information theory. Volume 2 delves deeper into relationships between these topics, including stochastic geometry, geometric aspects of the theory of communications and coding, multivariate statisticalanalysis, and error propagation on Lie groups. Key features and topics of Volume 1: * The author reviews stochastic processes and basic differential geometry in an accessible way for applied mathematicians, scientists, and engineers.* Extensive exercises and motivating examples make the work suitable as a textbook for use in courses that emphasize ap plied stochastic processes or differential geometry. * The concept of Lie groups as continuous sets of symmetryoperations is introduced. * The FokkerPlanck Equation for diffusion processes in Euclidean space and on differentiable manifolds is derived in a way that can be understood by nonspecialists. * The concrete presentation style makesit easy for readers to obtain numerical solutions for their own problems the emphasis is on how to calculate quantities rather than how to prove theorems. * A self-conta ined appendix provides a comprehensive review of concepts fromlinear algebra, multivariate calculus, and systems of ordinary differential equations.

He includes the fundamental considerations and the physics of thenecessary laser, UV, IR and RF technologies, as well as coding and information theory considerations. The author explores future possibilities providing the reader with a comprehensive view of the many ways signals from aliens could besent and explains why the search using RF le aves more than 99% of the electromagnetic spectrum unexamined. He also demonstrates the many parts of the electromagnetic spectrum, considering the next likely steps in this uniqueenterprise. Given mans intrinsic nature to explore, the search will continu e in one form or many, until success is achieved, which may be tomorrow or a millennium away. In summary, Monte Ross proposes to get around the failure of afruitless search at radio frequencies by developing, in a precise way, the argument for searching f or transmissions in the optical region of the electromagnetic spectrum

Note:Information is an important feature of the modern world. Mathematical techniques underlie the devices that we use to handle it, for example, mobile phones, digital cameras, and personal computers. This book is an integratedintroduction to the mathema tics of coding, that is, replacing information expressed in symbols, such as a natural language or a sequence of bits, by another message using (possibly) different symbols. There are three main reasons fordoing this: economy, reliability, and security, a nd each is covered in detail. Only a modest mathematical background is assumed, the mathematical theory being introduced at a level that enables the basic problems to be statedcarefully, but without unnecessary abstraction. Other features include: clear a nd careful exposition of fundamental concepts, including optimal coding, data compression, and public-key cryptography concise but complete proofs ofresults coverage of recent advances of practical interest, for example in encryption standards, authentica tion schemes, and elliptic curve cryptography numerous examples and exercises, and a full solutions manual available tolecturers from www.springer.com This modern introduction to all aspects of coding is suitable for advanced undergraduate or postgraduate courses in mathematics, computer science, electrical engineering, or informatics.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The theory of algebraic function fields over finite fields has its origins in number theory. However, after Goppa`s discovery of algebraic geometry codes around 1980, many applications of function fields were found in differentareas of mathematics an d information theory, such as coding theory, sphere packings and lattices, sequence design, and cryptography. The use of function fields often led to better results than those of classical approaches. This bookpresents survey articles on some of these new developments. Most of the material is directly related to the interaction between function fields and their various applications in particular the structure and the number of rationalplaces of function fields are of great significance. The topics focus o n material which has not yet been presented in other books or survey articles. Wherever applications are pointed out, a special effort has been made to present somebackground concerning their use

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Recently, quantum information theory has been developing through a fusion of results from various research fields. This requires that understanding of basic results on diverse topics, and derived from different disciplinaryperspectives, is required f or appreciating the overall picture. Intended to merge key topics from both the information-theoretic and quantum- mechanical viewpoints, this graduate-level textbook provides a unified viewpoint of quantuminformation theory and lucid explanations of thos e basic results, so that the reader fundamentally grasps advances and challenges. For example, advanced topics in quantum communication such as quantum teleportation, superdense coding,quantum state transmission (quantum error-correction), and quantum enc ryption especially benefit from this unified approach. Unlike earlier treatments, the text requires knowledge of only linear algebra, probability theory, and quantummechanics, while it treats the topics of quantum hypothesis testing and the discrimination of quantum states, and quantum channel coding (message transmission) with the minimal amount of math needed to convey their essence. Solving themore than 240 exercises provides readers with practice that not only enriches their knowledge of quantum infor mation theory, but also can equip them with the techniques necessary for pursuing their own research in this field

It is a marvellous book, in touch with the most recent applications ofnumber theory and written with great clarity and humor. Philip Morrison (Scientific American) A light -hearted and readable volume with a wide range of applications to which the author has been a productive contributor usefulmathematics outside the formalities of theorem and proof. Martin Gardner

Title:Statistical and Inductive Inference by Minimum Message Length [electronic resource]
Author(s): C.S Wallace
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Minimum Message Length (MML) Principle is an information-theoretic approach to induction, hypothesis testing, model selection, and statistical inference. MML, which provides a formal specification for the implementation ofOccam's Razor, asserts t hat the best explanation of observed data is the shortest. Further, an explanation is acceptable (i.e. the induction is justified) only if the explanation is shorter than the original data. This book givesa sound introduction to the Minimum Message Length Principle and its applications, provides the theoretical arguments for the adoption of the principle, and shows the development of certain approximations that assist its practicalapplication. MML appears also to provide both a normative and a descriptive basis for inductive reasoning generally, and scientific induction in particular. The book describes this basis and aims to show its relevance to the Philosophyof Science. Statistical and Inductive Inference by Minimum Message Length will be of special in terest to graduate students and researchers in Machine Learning and Data Mining, scientists and analysts in various disciplines wishing tomake use of computer techniques for hypothesis discovery, statisticians and econometricians interested in the underly ing theory of their discipline, and persons interested in the Philosophy of Science. The book could also be used in agraduate-level course in Machine Learning and Estimation and Model-selection, Econometrics and Data Mining. C.S. Wallace was appointed Fou ndation Chair of Computer Science at Monash University in 1968, at the age of 35, where he workeduntil his death in 2004. He received an ACM Fellowship in 1995, and was appointed Professor Emeritus in 1996. Professor Wallace made numerous significant cont ributions to diverse areas of Computer Science, such as ComputerArchitecture, Simulation and Machine Learning. His final research focused primarily on the Minimum Message Length Principle
