About these proceedings


This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 6th Conference on Theory of Quantum Computation, Communication, and Cryptography, TQC 2011, held in Madrid, Spain, in May 2011. The 14 revised papers presented were carefully selected from numerous submissions. The papers present new and original research and cover a large range of topics in quantum computation, communication and cryptography, a new and interdisciplinary field at the intersection of computer science, information theory and quantum mechanics.
