   Information is energy: definition of a physically based concept of information
Pagel L., Springer International Publishing, Cham, Switzerland, 2023. 238 pp.  Type: Book (3658408618)

Shannon’s theory of information is one of the cornerstones of modern computer science (CS). The formalism he developed for quantifying channel capacity was previously known from statistical thermodynamics as entropy, and the significance of ...

   Toward automatic verification of quantum programs
Ying M. Formal Aspects of Computing 31(1): 3-25, 2019.  Type: Article

Even if a world of quantum computing for everyone is years (if not decades) away, research on designing proper ways to program such systems has been ongoing for quite some time. History shows that programming is hard; making correct pr...

  The theory of quantum information
Watrous J., Cambridge University Press, New York, NY, 2018. 598 pp.  Type: Book (978-1-107180-56-7)

Information theory has its modern origins in the 1948 work [1] of Claude Shannon, who gave results that addressed two key problems: the extent to which information can be compressed without loss, and the rate at which information can b...

  Universal quantum computing: supervening decoherence -- surmounting uncertainty
Amoroso R., World Scientific Publishing Co, Inc., Hackensack, NJ, 2017. 632 pp.  Type: Book

Quantum computing is one of the hottest research fields right now, although the theory behind it had its start in the early 1980s, when Richard Feynman asked in a lecture why simulating quantum effects with classical (non-quantum) comp...

  Resilient wireless sensor networks: the case of network coding
Al-Kofahi O., Kamal A., Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2015. 68 pp.  Type: Book (978-3-319239-63-7)

The area of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) has long been a field of research in communications, computer science, and power engineering, not mention the diversity of sensors needed to acquire the raw measurements. The reason is that m...

  Bitemporal data: theory and practice
Johnston T., Morgan Kaufmann Publishers Inc., San Francisco, CA, 2014. 400 pp.  Type: Book (978-0-124080-67-6)

Things are not the same as data about these things in databases. Therefore, statements about things are different from statements about representations of these things in databases. Moreover, when incorrect representations about things...
