Quantum computers

  • Eine kurze Geschichte des Quantencomputers (TELEPOLIS)by Christian J. Meier

    Heise Verlag 2015; US$ 13.35

    Die NSA entwickelt einen, Google und die NASA haben sich eine erste kommerzielle Version davon gekauft. Aber was ist das eigentlich, ein Quantencomputer? more...

  • It From Bit or Bit From It?by Anthony Aguirre; Brendan Foster; Zeeya Merali

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 89.99

    The essays in this book look at the question of whether physics can be based on information, or ? as John Wheeler phrased it ? whether we can get ?It from Bit?. They are based on the prize-winning essays submitted to the FQXi essay competition of the same name, which drew over 180 entries. The eighteen contributions address topics as diverse as quantum... more...

  • Quantum Correlations Beyond Entanglementby Alexander Streltsov

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 54.99

    Quantum correlations are not restricted to the well known entanglement investigated in Bell-type experiments. Other forms of correlations, for example quantum discord, have recently been shown to play an important role in several aspects of quantum information theory. First experiments also support these findings. This book is an introduction into... 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...

  • Quantum Chanceby Nicolas Gisin; Alain Aspect

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 19.99

    From Bell's Theorem to experiments in quantum entanglement, this book helps readers gain a solid understanding of one of the most fascinating areas of contemporary physics. It illuminates the many logical paradoxes of quantum physics without using mathematics. more...

  • Elements of Quantum Computingby Seiki Akama

    Springer International Publishing 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...

  • Quantum Information and Coherenceby

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book offers an introduction to key topics in quantum information science and quantum coherent phenomena, covering quantum retrodiction, ultracold quantum gases in optical lattices, optomechanics, quantum algorithms, quantum key distribution and much more. 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$ 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...
