Quantum computers

  • 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...

  • Guided Self-Organizationby Mikhail Prokopenko

    Springer 2013; US$ 179.00

    Is it possible to guide the process of self-organisation towards specific patterns and outcomes?†Wouldn?t this be self-contradictory?†After all, a self-organising process assumes a transition into a more organised form, or towards a more structured functionality, in the absence of centralised control.†Then how can we place the guiding elements so that... more...

  • Formulation of Uncertainty Relation Between Error and Disturbance in Quantum Measurement by Using Quantum Estimation Theoryby Yu Watanabe

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    In this thesis, quantum estimation theory is applied to investigate uncertainty relations between error and disturbance in quantum measurement. The author argues that the best solution for clarifying the attainable bound of the error and disturbance is to invoke the estimation process from the measurement outcomes such as signals from a photodetector... more...

  • Towards Solid-State Quantum Repeatersby Kristiaan De Greve

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    Towards Solid-State Quantum Repeaters: Ultrafast, Coherent Optical Control and Spin-Photon Entanglement in Charged InAs Quantum Dots summarizes several state-of-the-art coherent spin manipulation experiments in III-V quantum dots. Both high-fidelity optical manipulation, decoherence due to nuclear spins and the spin coherence extraction are discussed,... more...

  • Quantum Computing verstehenby Matthias Homeister

    Springer 2013; US$ 39.95

    Quantenrechner versprechen ungeahnte Rechenleistung. Quantenverschlüsselungs-Systeme sind sicherer als alle Alternativen. Theoretische Informatiker überdenken die Grundlagen des Rechnens neu - die Forschungen zum Quantencomputer haben die Informatik verändert. Dieses Buch führt anschaulich und auf Beispiele gestützt in die... more...

  • Introduction to the Theory of Quantum Information Processingby JŠnos A. Bergou; Mark Hillery

    Springer 2013; US$ 89.95

    Introduction to the Theory of Quantum Information Processing provides the material for a one-semester graduate level course on quantum information theory and quantum computing for students who have had a one-year graduate course in quantum mechanics. Many standard subjects are treated, such as density matrices, entanglement, quantum maps, quantum cryptography,... more...

  • Quantum Information and Quantum Computingby Mikio Nakahara; Yoshitaka Sasaki

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 127.00

    The open research center project ?Interdisciplinary fundamental research toward realization of a quantum computer? has been supported by the Ministry of Education, Japan for five years. This is a collection of the research outcomes by the members engaged in the project. To make the presentation self-contained, it starts with an overview by Mikio Nakahara,... more...

  • LECTURES ON QUANTUM COMPUTING, THERMODYNAMICS AND STATISTICAL PHYSICSby Mikio Nakahara; Shu Tanaka

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 109.00

    This book is a collection of lecture notes from the Symposium on Quantum Computing, Thermodynamics, and Statistical Physics, held at Kinki University in March 2012. Quantum information theory has a deep connection with statistical physics and thermodynamics. This volume introduces some of the topics on interface among the mentioned fields. Subjects... more...

  • FRONTIERS IN QUANTUM INFORMATION RESEARCHby Mikio Nakahara; Shu Tanaka

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 166.00

    This book is a collection of lecture notes/contributions from a summer school on decoherence, entanglement & entropy and a workshop on MPS (matrix product states) & DMRG (density matrix renormalization group). Subjects of the summer school include introduction to MPS, black holes, qubits and octonions, weak measurement, entanglement measures and separability,... more...
