Special Issue "Quantum Entropies and Complexity"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 September 2019).
Revolutionary recent advances in quantum information, communication, and computation have involved the ubiquitous use of entropy-related concepts as fundamental tools to monitor and quantify the complex behavior of quantum systems, by themselves as in quantum dynamics and quantum phase-transitions, and in relation to the manipulation of information they can carry. Quantum entropy, relative entropy, mutual information, and their dynamics are at the core of many disciplines. On the one hand, their purpose is to use quantum mechanics to augment the efficiency of known classical information protocols by using such correlations as quantum entanglement and discord; on the other hand, their aim is to assess how such correlations are created by either physical processes or by suitably engineered ones, especially in many-body quantum systems. One of the goals is to devise quantum protocols that might boost revolutionary practical applications in fields as varied as quantum machine learning, quantum transport processes, quantum metrology, and quantum thermodynamics. In all these different scenarios, entropy-related concepts stand out as fundamental tools with which to capture the complexity of the processes involved and to harness them to the advantage of increasing the efficiency of protocols, by establishing and reaching their ultimate quantum limits.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
