  • 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...

  • 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 Walks for Computer Scientistsby Salvador Venegas-Andraca

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2008; US$ 40.00

    Quantum computation, one of the latest joint ventures between physics and the theory of computation, is a scientific field whose main goals include the development of hardware and algorithms based on the quantum mechanical properties of those physical systems used to implement such algorithms. Solving difficult tasks (for example, the Satisfiability... more...

  • Quantum Computer Scienceby Marco Lanzagorta; Jeffrey Uhlmann

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2009; US$ 40.00

    In this text we present a technical overview of the emerging field of quantum computation along with new research results by the authors. What distinguishes our presentation from that of others is our focus on the relationship between quantum computation and computer science. Specifically, our emphasis is on the computational model of quantum computingrather... more...

  • The Complexity of Noiseby Amit Hagar

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2010; US$ 30.00

    In quantum computing, where algorithms exist that can solve computational problems more efficiently than any known classical algorithms, the elimination of errors that result from external disturbances or from imperfect gates has become the "holy grail", and a worldwide quest for a large scale fault-tolerant, and computationally superior, quantum computer... more...

  • Quantum Computing for Computer Architects, Second Editionby Tzvetan Metodi; Arvin I. Faruque; Frederic T. Chong

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2011; US$ 50.00

    Quantum computers can (in theory) solve certain problems far faster than a classical computer running any known classical algorithm. While existing technologies for building quantum computers are in their infancy, it is not too early to consider their scalability and reliability in the context of the design of large-scale quantum computers. To architect... more...

  • High-Level Structures for Quantum Computingby Jaroslaw Miszczak

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2012; US$ 40.00

    This book is concerned with the models of quantum computation. Information processing based on the rules of quantum mechanics provides us with new opportunities for developing more efficient algorithms and protocols. However, to harness the power offered by quantum information processing it is essential to control the behavior of quantum mechanical... more...

  • A Shortcut Through Timeby George Johnson

    Random House 2011; US$ 15.98

    The newest Pentium chip powering PCs and laptops contains 40 million electronic switches packed onto a piece of silicon about the size of a thumbnail. Several years from now, if this incredible shrinking continues, a single chip will hold a billion switches, then a trillion. The logical culmination is a computer in which the switches are so tiny... more...

  • Quantum Networkingby Rodney Van Meter

    Wiley 2014; US$ 150.00

    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...

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

    Wiley 2007; US$ 253.00

    Wolfgang P. Schleich, born in 1957, is head of the Institute of Quantum Physics at the University of Ulm, Germany, and Adjunct Professor at the University of North Texas in Denton, USA. While working at the Universities of New Mexico, Albuquerque, of Texas at Austin and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Physics, Garching, Germany, he has collaborated... more...
