Contributor(s): Lombardi, Olimpia [editor.] | Fortin, Sebastian, 1979- [editor.] | Holik, Federico [editor.] | López, Cristian [editor.].
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: CUP 2017Description: x, 263 pages : illustrations ; 26 cm.ISBN: 9781107142114; 1107142113.Subject(s): Physics -- Philosophy | Information theory | Quantum theoryDDC classification: 530.1201/154
Contents:
About the concept of information / Sebastian Fortin and Olimpia Lombardi -- Representation, information, and theories of information / Armond Duwell -- Information, communication and manipulability / Olimpia Lombardi and Cristian Lopez -- Quantum versus classical information / Jeffrey Bub -- Quantum information and locality / Dennis Dieks -- Pragmatic information in quantum mechanics / Juan Roederer -- Interpretations of quantum theory: a map of madness / Adan Cabello -- On the tension between ontology and epistemology in quantum probabilities / Amit Hagar -- Inferential versus dynamical conceptions of physics / David Wallace -- Classical models for quantum information / Federico Holik and Gustavo Martin Bosyk -- On the relative character of quantum correlations / Guido Bellomo and Angel Ricardo Plastino.
Summary: "Combining physics and philosophy, this is a uniquely interdisciplinary examination of Quantum Information Science which provides an up-to-date examination of developments in this field. The authors provide coherent definitions and theories of information, taking clearly defined approaches to considering information in connection with quantum mechanics, probability, and correlations. Concepts addressed include entanglement of quantum states, the relation of quantum correlations to quantum information, and the meaning of the informational approach for the foundations of quantum mechanics. Furthermore, the mathematical concept of information in the communicational context, and the notion of pragmatic information are considered"--
