Quantum information

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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.
