One of the most cited books in physics of all time, Quantum Computation and Quantum Information remains the best textbook in this exciting field of science. This 10th anniversary edition includes an introduction from the authors setting the work in context. This comprehensive textbook describes such remarkable effects as fast quantum algorithms, quantum teleportation, quantum cryptography and quantum error-correction. Quantum mechanics and computer science are introduced before moving on to describe what a quantum computer is, how it can be used to solve problems faster than 'classical' computers and its real-world implementation. It concludes with an in-depth treatment of quantum information. Containing a wealth of figures and exercises, this well-known textbook is ideal for courses on the subject, and will interest beginning graduate students and researchers in physics, computer science, mathematics, and electrical engineering.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid the "10th anniversary edition" at all cost March 21 2013
By Quasar
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Nielsen and Chuang's textbook on quantum computation is a wonderful book, and I recommend it wholeheartedly. However, customers should be warned to stay away from the "10th anniversary edition".

The first edition of this book contained a large number typos and errors, many of which were corrected in the second to fifth printing. See [...] for a list of errata.

However, for some reason, the publisher decided to undo all of these corrections in the 10th anniversary edition. So, with the exception of two corrected misspellings (that were apparently found by a spell-checker) the 10th anniversary edition is an exact copy of the first printing, with all the typos and errors.

I just bought several copies of the 10th anniversary edition, and I wish I had bought the fifth printing of the first edition instead. I hope this advice will be useful to some.

4.0 out of 5 stars A reprint of a very good reference book Jan. 18 2012
By Guilherme P. Temporao - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Nielsen and Chuang's book can still be considered the main reference book on quantum information and computation, even after more than 10 years of the original release. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a reference to start from.

However, if you already own the original version of the book, be warned that this book is basically a reprint of the first edition. It's true that it comes with a new introduction and afterword from the authors - but the new material is only 4 (four) pages long, and can be found online for free in this very site under the "Look inside" link. This is the reason why I gave 4 stars instead of 5 - I believe that a "10th Anniversary Edition" deserved a little bit more than 4 pages of new information, especially in the case of a book on a very dynamic field.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quantum computation & infromation book July 7 2012
By D.S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a quite poplar book even after ten years of the first edition. It is also adopted in many courses around the globe. However, I think the authors should put more effort in providing more solved examples so that the book can be easier to follow for self-study. Some problems are based on published papers.
