"As the title states, this book provides a concise overview over quantum information theory...
This is... a nice book which can be recommended to researchers in other fields who wants to get
a fast and sound overview over the subject. It is also suitable for students learning quantum information theory...
For researchers working in quantum information theory it... can serve as a compact reference book."
(Michael Keyl, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1166, 2009)
"This is a comprehensive overview of quantum information, including computation, communication
and cryptography. It is not a textbook (there are no exercises) and it is not intended to be
an easy introduction to the subject. But as a research-level treatment of the subject, it is very valuable.
... The book can be recommended as a useful resource for researchers in any area of quantum information,
including those who are familiar with one topic and wish to enter another."
