Quantum Information Theory is the study of information-processing tasks such as storage and transmission of information, or manipulation of entanglement, using quantum-mechanical systems. Until very recently, the study of these processes was limited to the case in which the required resources, e.g. information sources, communication channels or entanglement resources, were assumed to be available for an infinite number of independent uses. In reality, however, resources are used a finite number of times, and there are unavoidable correlations between their successive uses. Hence, it is important to forego the assumption of independence and evaluate optimal rates of information-processing tasks for finite number of uses of correlated resources.
