A Short Introduction to Quantum Information and Quantum Computation

By Michel Le Bellac

Quantum info and computation is a speedily increasing and cross-disciplinary topic. This publication, first released in 2006, offers a self-contained advent to the sphere for physicists, mathematicians and computing device scientists who need to know extra approximately this intriguing topic. After a step by step advent to the quantum bit (qubit) and its major homes, the writer provides the required historical past in quantum mechanics. The center of the topic, quantum computation, is illustrated via an in depth remedy of 3 quantum algorithms: Deutsch, Grover and Shor. the ultimate chapters are dedicated to the actual implementation of quantum pcs, together with the newest facets, resembling superconducting qubits and quantum dots, and to a brief account of quantum info. Written at a degree compatible for undergraduates in actual sciences, no prior wisdom of quantum mechanics is believed, and purely hassle-free notions of physics are required. The e-book comprises many brief workouts, with recommendations to be had to teachers via solutions@cambridge.org.
