High performance computing

  • High Performance Parallel I/Oby Prabhat; Quincey Koziol

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 89.95

    Gain Critical Insight into the Parallel I/O Ecosystem Parallel I/O is an integral component of modern high performance computing (HPC), especially in storing and processing very large datasets to facilitate scientific discovery. Revealing the state of the art in this field, High Performance Parallel I/O draws on insights from leading practitioners,... 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...

  • Tunneling Dynamics in Open Ultracold Bosonic Systemsby Axel U. J. Lode

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    This thesis addresses the intriguing topic of the quantum tunnelling of many-body systems such as Bose-Einstein condensates. Despite the enormous amount of work on the tunneling of a single particle through a barrier, we know very little about?how a system made of several or of many particles tunnels through a barrier to open space.?The present?work... 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...

  • 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...

  • High-Performance Computing on Complex Environmentsby Emmanuel Jeannot; Julius Zilinskas

    Wiley 2014; US$ 115.00

    • Covers cutting-edge research in HPC on complex environments, following an international collaboration of members of the ComplexHPC • Explains how to efficiently exploit heterogeneous and hierarchical architectures and distributed systems • Twenty-three chapters and over 100 illustrations cover domains such as numerical... more...

  • Integrated Devices for Quantum Information with Polarization Encoded Qubitsby Linda Sansoni

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Quantum information science has found great experimental success?by exploiting?single photons. To date, however, the majority of quantum optical experiments use large-scale (bulk) optical elements bolted down to an optical bench, an approach that ultimately limits the complexity and stability of the quantum circuits required for quantum science and... more...

  • Magnetic Order and Coupling Phenomenaby Christian Schubert

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    This thesis presents recent developments in magnetic coupling phenomena of ferrimagnetic rare-earth transition-metal Tb-Fe alloys and coupled systems consisting of ferri-/ferromagnetic heterostructures. Taking advantage of the tunability of the exchange coupling between ferrimagnetic and ferromagnetic layers by means of stoichiometry of the Tb-Fe layer,... more...
