About the Author

Stephen Barnett graduated with a BSc in physics from Imperial College London in 1982 and stayed at IC to study for his PhD under the supervision of Peter Knight, graduating in 1985. He held personal Research Fellowships at Imperial College, Harwell and Wolfson College Oxford and at Somerville College Oxford, where he taught Engineering Science. After a year as a Lecturer at Kings College London he moved to Strathclyde in 1991 as a Royal Society of Edinburgh/Scottish Office Education Department research Fellow. He was appointed as a Senior Lecturer and then Reader in 1994 before being promoted to Professor in 1996. He is best known for his work, with David Pegg, on the quantum phase operator, work for which he was awarded the Maxwell Medal and Prize by the Institute of Physics in 1994. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1996 and a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2006. He is currently a recipient of a Royal Society-Wolfson Merit Award and was awarded the James Scott Prize.


This is an excellent introductory book, ideal for a final year UK undergraduate course in QI. It is the best one I have found so far and provides an excellent grounding for more advanced books like Nielsen and Chuang for example * Professor David Toms, Newcastle University *
Stephen Barnett's Quantum Information is a concise and remarkably readable account of most of the developments in the field. His book touches on almost all aspects of quantum information and quantum computing, including communication and measurement theory, entanglement, and computing algorithms. An impressive book...The engaging introductory chapters, extensive problem sets, and exhaustive appendices result in a textbook highly recommended for a one-semester course on quantum information at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level. * Physics Today *
A carefully written book..., well suited as a textbook..., strong on pedagogy..., accomplishes a lot as a very accessible first introduction to quantum information. * American Journal of Physics * impressive book. The engaging introductory chapters, extensive problems sets, and exhaustive appendices result in a textbook that I highly recommend for a one-semester course on quantum information at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level. * M. Suhail Zubairy, Physics Today *
A nice introduction to quantum information. * Mathematical Reviews *
