  No cloning theorem -- Facts, Info, and Encyclopedia article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-06)
The no cloning theorem is a result of (The branch of quantum physics that accounts for matter at the atomic level; an extension of statistical mechanics based on quantum theory (especially the Pauli exclusion principle)) quantum mechanics which forbids the creation of identical copies of an arbitrary unknown quantum state.
In contrast, the no cloning theorem is a vital ingredient in (Click link for more info and facts about quantum cryptography) quantum cryptography, as it forbids eavesdroppers from creating copies of a transmitted quantum cryptographic key.
Imperfect cloning can be used as an eavesdropping attack on quantum cryptography protocols, among other uses in quantum information science.

However, there is no serious attempt to formulate the ``no-cloning'' theorem for quantum systems with continuous variables.

 Physics bans cloning
But quantum cloning is only feasible if one accepts a little bit of copying error - as two US physicists proved in 1982 with their 'no-cloning' theorem.
This theorem means that quantum teleportation - recreating a quantum particle in a different location from the original, but in exactly the same state - is only possible if the original is destroyed, so that it does not coexist with its copy.
No one had given much thought to ideas such as exact cloning and teleportation on macroscopic scales, where Newton's laws of classical physics apply.

 Quantum Information: Basic Concepts
In the theory of Quantum Information entanglement is no longer viewed merely as a means to "subtly humiliate the opponents of quantum mechanics" (C.H. Bennett), but as a resource needed to perform otherwise impossible tasks of information processing or computation.
The term "cloning" in the quantum context, coined in a short paper by Wooters and Zurek [WZ82], reflects rather well the idea that there is no blueprint for quantum systems (analogous to a sheep's DNA) from which all its properties could be derived (see the remarks on teleportation).
All these limit relations are in agreement with the intuition that state estimation is the limit of cloning as the number of clones goes to infinity, and that this limit is very closely related to the classical limit.

But by definition it would be the same person, even more identical than if the person had taken a spaceship to the moon, since undoubtedly the person would have noticeably changed from the time they left the Earth and arrived on the moon.
Of course the problem with this idea of teleportation is no process is ever going to be 100% efficient.

 [No title]
The no-cloning theorem states that for an arbitrary qubit, it is impossible to perform an unitary operation which duplicates the qubit.
The k bits are treated as a vector and represented by a matrix,  EMBED Equation.3  The generator matrix G then encodes this matrix and the result is G*X = V. The encoded message is then transmitted and the original data map and the transmitted data map are compared.
To check which bit was hit by the error, the parity check matrix H is multiplied by V. If there was no error on transmission, the resulting matrix will be a 0, else it will be the binary equivalent of the index of the bit in V where there was an error.

 Photons get the quantum cloning treatment (March 2002) - News - PhysicsWeb
Quantum systems cannot be cloned – or duplicated – perfectly, but the development of quantum cryptography and computing relies on a knowledge of exactly how well they can be copied.
This is the ‘no-cloning’ theorem, which is the basis of quantum cryptography.

 Superbroadcasting   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-06)
Later, in the literature this result has been often implicitly considered as the generalization of the no-cloning theorem to the case of mixed input states, according to the general statement that an arbitrary pair of states can be broadcast if and only if they are represented by mutually commuting density matrices
For pure states the optimal superbroadcasting map is the same as the optimal universal cloning [R. Werner, Phys.
The possibility of superbroadcasting does not correspond to an increase of the available information about the original input state, due to detrimental correlations between the broadcast copies, which does not allow to exploit their statistics [this phenomenon was already noticed by M. Keyl and R. Werner, Ann.
