  • Annual Review of Scalable Computing, Vol 3by Yuen Chung Kwong

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 149.00

    The third volume in the Series on Scalable Computing , this book contains five new articles describing significant developments in the field. Included are such current topics as clusters, parallel tools, load balancing, mobile systems, and architecture independence. Contents: Anatomy of a Resource Management System for HPC Clusters; On-Line OCM-Based... more...

  • Principles of Quantum Computation and Information - Volume Iby Giuliano Benenti; Giulio Casati; Giuliano Strini

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 135.00

    Quantum computation and information is a new, rapidly developing interdisciplinary field. Therefore, it is not easy to understand its fundamental concepts and central results without facing numerous technical details. This book provides the reader a useful and not-too-heavy guide. It offers a simple and self-contained introduction; no previous knowledge... more...

  • Approximability of Optimization Problems through Adiabatic Quantum Computationby William Cruz-Santos; Guillermo Morales-Luna

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2014; US$ 40.00

    The adiabatic quantum computation (AQC) is based on the adiabatic theorem to approximate solutions of the Schrödinger equation. The design of an AQC algorithm involves the construction of a Hamiltonian that describes the behavior of the quantum system. This Hamiltonian is expressed as a linear interpolation of an initial Hamiltonian whose ground state... more...

  • Quantum Computer Scienceby N. David Mermin

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 52.00

    A concise introduction to quantum computation for computer scientists who know nothing about quantum theory. more...

  • Elements of Quantum Computingby Seiki Akama

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    A quantum computer is a computer based on a computational model which uses quantum mechanics, which is a subfield of physics to study phenomena at the micro level. There has been a growing interest on quantum computing in the 1990's and some quantum computers at the experimental level were recently implemented. Quantum computers enable super-speed... more...

  • Negative Quantum Channelsby James M. McCracken

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2014; US$ 50.00

    This book is a brief introduction to negative quantum channels, i.e., linear, trace-preserving (and consistent) quantum maps that are not completely positive. The flat and sharp operators are introduced and explained. Complete positivity is presented as a mathematical property, but it is argued that complete positivity is not a physical requirement... more...

  • High Performance Computing and the Art of Parallel Programmingby Stan Openshaw; Ian Turton

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 264.00

    This book provides a non-technical introduction to High Performance Computing applications together with advice about how beginners can start to write parallel programs. The authors show what HPC can offer geographers and social scientists and how it can be used in GIS. They provide examples of where it has already been used and suggestions for other... more...

  • Elements of Quantum Informationby Wolfgang P. Schleich; Herbert Walther

    Wiley 2007; US$ 245.00

    'Elements of Quantum Information' introduces the reader to the fascinating field of quantum information processing, which lives on the interface between computer science, physics, mathematics, and engineering. This interdisciplinary branch of science thrives on the use of quantum mechanics as a resource for high potential modern applications. With... more...

  • Quantum Computing Explainedby David McMahon

    Wiley 2007; US$ 107.95

    A self-contained treatment of the fundamentals of quantum computing This clear, practical book takes quantum computing out of the realm of theoretical physics and teaches the fundamentals of the field to students and professionals who have not had training in quantum computing or quantum information theory, including computer scientists, programmers,... more...

  • Quantum Networkingby Rodney Van Meter

    Wiley 2014; US$ 145.00

    Quantum networks build on entanglement and quantum measurement to achieve tasks that are beyond the reach of classical systems. Using quantum effects, we can detect the presence of eavesdroppers, raise the sensitivity of scientific instruments such as telescopes, or teleport quantum data from one location to another. Long-distance entanglement can... more...
