Roger Colbeck's lecture notes on QKD.

Michael Nielsen and Isaac Chuang, *
Quantum Computation and Quantum Information. (buy it, borrow it).*

Renato Renner and Matthias Christandl, QIT lecture notes.

Historic paper by Wiesner, in which he sketches the first scheme for quantum cryptography (and introduces quantum money).

Original scribbles by Schroedinger, in which he discovers entanglement, and is frankly puzzled by it.

Paper on **Entropic Uncertainty Relation**: http://arxiv.org/abs/0909.0950

Students that are interested in semester or master projects in the topic of quantum information theory are welcome to attend the presentation of possible topics on Dec 11, 2012 at 15:30 in front of Prof. Renner's and Prof. Christandl's offices, at HIT 41.2. This meeting is announced on http://www.qit.ethz.ch/ and any updates will be posted there.
