James Pinfold FRSC is a professor of physics at the University of Alberta and a visiting professor at King's College London. He obtained a BSc (Honours) and an Associateship of the Royal College of Science from Imperial College London in 1972. He gained his PhD at University College London in 1977 as a member of CERN's Gargamelle Collaboration team that discovered the first hard evidence for the unification of the electromagnetic and weak forces. Pinfold is currently spokesman for the MoEDAL-LHC experiment, and co-spokesman of the SLIM astroparticle experiment at Mt Chacaltaya in Bolivia. He is also a founding member of the ATLAS-LHC Experiment at CERN and has made several major contributions to the hardware and physics performance of the experiment. ATLAS recently observed a new particle thought to be the Higgs boson. In the USA he co-led a team that made the "first observations" of exclusive physics as a member of the CDF-Tavatron collaboration at Fermilab near Chicago. Prior to this Pinfold was a founding member of the OPAL collaboration that performed unprecedented tests of the Standard Model at CERN's LEP Collider. At that time he became the youngest ever leader of an international collider experiment, MODAL, designed to search for direct production of the magnetic monopole production at LEP. He has authored or coauthored nearly 1000 citeable papers with an average citation count per paper of 67.

The "Information Paradigm" provides a new unifying fundamental approach to the physical and computation sciences that can be extended to include the biological sciences. The "Information Theory" approach is now at the theoretical cutting edge of these fields. This book provides numerous "everyday" examples of the use of physics of information for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, postdocs and academics in the field. Areas discussed in the book include the black hole information paradox that is a central issue in cosmology; the effort to produce a useful quantum computer; and the investigation of the role of information and quantum information in the biological sciences.
