Open Systems, Entanglement and Quantum Optics

Edited by Andrzej Jamiolkowski

Nicolaus Copernicus University, Poland

The subject of this book is a presentation of some aspects of modern theory of open quantum systems. It introduces several up-to- date topics, such as detecting quantum entanglement, modeling of quantum noise, quantum communication processes, and computational complexity in the analysis of quantum operations. Also discussed are light propagation in optically dressed media, as well as entropy and information measure for quantized electromagnetic fields media. This book is intended for researchers and students interested in the theory of open quantum systems, quantum information theory and quantum systems interacting with electromagnetic fields.
