Quantum Information Theory  

In General > s.a. information; entanglement; formulations of quantum theory [algebraic]; quantum correlations; quantum mechanics.
* Idea: Quantum information theory includes that of quantum measurement; In fact, according to a developing viewpoint, quantum mechanics really is a theory of information; The quantum information in a state includes quantum correlations (entanglement and quantum discord); > s.a. formulations of quantum mechanics.
* History: 2013, The field is now established, no longer emerging.
* Quantum no-hiding theorem: If information is missing from one system (which may happen when the system interacts with the environment), then the information is simply residing somewhere else in the Universe; In other words, the missing information cannot be hidden in the correlations between a system and its environment.

* Channel capacity: The capacity of the bosonic channel with thermal noise and linear loss hinges on the bosonic minimum output entropy conjecture, which states that the vacuum input gives the minimum output entropy for a channel with thermal noise, and was proved in 2009; It implies that the bosonic channel attains its capacity for coherent state inputs.
