Abstract:

Basic concepts in quantum field theory are used to represent communication systems. Maxwells equations are reduced to the equations of motion of the forced simple harmonic oscillator and quantized in the Heisenberg picture. The state of a communication system is represented by a statistical density operator satisfying the postulate that the system can be in either a vacuum state or a maximum entropy state. Probability functions are derived representing the statistics of a communication system. Author
