A helpful introduction to all aspects of quantum computing

Quantum computing is a field combining quantum mechanics--the physical science of nature at the scale of atoms and subatomic particles--and information science. Where ordinary computing uses bits, logical values whose position can either be 0 or 1, quantum computing is built around qubits, a fundamental unit of quantum information which can exist in a superposition of both states. As quantum computers are able to complete certain kinds of functions more accurately and efficiently than computers built on classical binary logic, quantum computing is an emerging frontier which promises to revolutionize information science and its applications.

This book provides a concise, accessible introduction to quantum computing. It begins by introducing the essentials of quantum mechanics that information and computer scientists require, before moving to detailed discussions of quantum computing in theory and practice. As quantum computing becomes an ever-greater part of the global information technology landscape, the knowledge in Quantum Computing will position readers to join a vital and highly marketable field of research and development.

The book's readers will also find:

  • Detailed diagrams and illustrations throughout
  • A broadly applicable quantum algorithm that improves on the best-known classical algorithms for a wide range of problems
  • In-depth discussion of essential topics including key distribution, cluster state quantum computing, superconducting qubits, and more

Quantum Computing is perfect for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in computer science, engineering, mathematics, or the physical sciences, as well as for researchers and academics at the intersection of these fields who want a concise reference.
