Quantum computers

  • 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

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 19.99

    Conveys a genuine understanding of extraordinary phenomena such as teleportation and quantum entanglement Illuminates these and other logical paradoxes of quantum physics without using mathematics Nicolas Gisin is an internationally renowned expert in quantum physics Foreword by Alain Aspect, whose pioneering experiments helped to confirm quantum... more...

  • Elements of Quantum Computingby Seiki Akama

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    Introductory book about quantum computing and theory of computing in general Enables the reader to grasp the concepts without much effort Includes various Engineering applications of quantum computing 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...

  • 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...
