Product description

Review

"A Short Introduction to Quantum Information and Quantum Computation is a laudable textbook by an author who has much experience writing about physics. It outperforms similar texts that contain more pages but fail to communicate the essence of the subject to anyone not working in the field."
Gregg Jaeger, Physics Today

"It is a self-contained presentationa of the main concepts of the field, not only aimed at physicists, but also at mathematicians and computer scientists at the graduate level."
Ellie D'Hondt, Mathematical Reviews

Book Description

This book, first published in 2006, provides an introduction to the subject of quantum information and computation. Aimed at physical science undergraduates, it journeys from quantum mechanics, through to quantum computation, before finishing with the implementation of quantum computers. The book supplies many short exercises to aid self study. Answers for instructors are available.
