Physics of Information

Vol. 48, No. 1, 2004

Order No. G322-0238
This issue of thirteen papers is dedicated to IBM Fellow Charles H. Bennett, whose sixtieth birthday was celebrated by a symposium in his honor in May 2003. His pioneering contributions to the physics of information are commemorated by papers on the fundamental statistical physics of lattice systems, which are representative of the work that arose from his famous resolution of the Maxwell demon paradox, papers on his pioneering work on quantum cryptography and quantum teleportation, and papers on his seminal contributions to the bridging of quantum theory and information processing.
