The book presents the strongest possible version of Gödel's incompleteness theorem, using an information-theoretic approach based on the size of computer programs. The author tried to present the material in the most direct fashion possible.
Data compression is useful in some situations because 'compressed data' will save time (in reading and on transmission) and space if compared to the unencoded information it represent. In this book, we describe the decompressor first.

The focus is on the mathematical theory of quantum information. We will begin with basic principles and methods for reasoning about quantum information, and then move on to a discussion of various results concerning quantum information.
