Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

The authors have given us an introduction to the new field of quantum information, accessible to anyone familiar with college-level mathematics. It will be the easiest way for anyone to go from knowing no quantum mechanics to understanding cutting-edge problems in quantum computing. It will also be the most comprehensive and current book on the subject." -- Michael B. Heaney, Applied Quantum Technology Solar, Inc. The authors' aim is to make quantum computation accessible to a broad audience, and they have done a very good job in breaking down its elements -- mathematics, physics, computer science -- into comprehensible pieces. The book should be a good addition to the educational literature on the subject. -- Karoline Wiesner, School of Mathematics and Center for Complexity Science, University of Bristol

The collection of exercises is a treasure... I could open any chapter and follow its content without having to turn to previous chapters for notions and notation... precious for the beginner... [a] masterpiece. I need not say more. -Physics Today
Rieffel and Polak have produced a pedagogical triumph. While reviewing this book, I designed and delivered a first-year undergraduate computing lecture and workshop drawing on its content, with excellent impact... A masterpiece that should be read by all who are interested in quantum computing. -Times Higher Education
[Quantum Computing] offers one of the best introductions to the themes and concepts of quantum measurement that I have ever read...The authors have the rare capacity of offering us a steady quality of educational throughput, regardless of the inherent difficulty of the theme presented...It is a significant education oeuvre. -Computing Reviews
