This graduate-level textbook provides a unified viewpoint of quantum information theory that merges key topics from both the information-theoretic and quantum- mechanical viewpoints. The text provides a unified viewpoint of quantum information theory and lucid explanations of those basic results, so that the reader fundamentally grasps advances and challenges. This unified approach makes accessible such advanced topics in quantum communication as quantum teleportation, superdense coding, quantum state transmission (quantum error-correction), and quantum encryption.

"Quantum Information: An Introduction by Masahito Hayashi provides much more than merely an introduction to this active area of study. The text is a thorough mathematical foundation upon which graduate students and early career researchers alike can build the knowledge and skills required to pursue their own research in the field. ... I will be gladly recommending this text to any researcher wishing to enter the field, from graduate student through to professor." (N. Oxtoby, Contemporary Physic, Vol. 49 (01),January-February, 2008)

"The book under review is, without a doubt, the most comprehensive textbook to date on quantum information theory. ... This comprehensive and theorem-heavy approach makes the book a valuable reference for those working in the field of quantum information. ... This book could be used in a graduate course in quantum information theory ... . an extremely helpful work, and I am glad that it is available." (Todd A. Brun, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2007 b)
