# Quantum information

Under **quantum information** is understood in quantum mechanical systems suspected information that is not with the laws of classical information theory can be described. It could play a central role in phenomena such as superposition and entanglement of states . Different definitions of the term quantum information are discussed. So far (2020) none of them could find general acceptance.
