Quantum Information Theory and the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics

Oxford University Press (2013)

Abstract
Christopher G. Timpson provides the first full-length philosophical treatment of quantum information theory and the questions it raises for our understanding of the quantum world. He argues for an ontologically deflationary account of the nature of quantum information, which is grounded in a revisionary analysis of the concepts of information.
