This book aims to provide a pedagogical introduction to the subjects of quantum information and quantum computation. Topics include non-locality of quantum mechanics, quantum computation, quantum cryptography, quantum error correction, fault-tolerant quantum computation as well as some experimental aspects of quantum computation and quantum cryptography. Only knowledge of basic quantum mechanics is assumed. Whenever more advanced concepts and techniques are used, they are introduced carefully. This book is meant to be a self-contained overview. While basic concepts are discussed in detail, unnecessary technical details are excluded. It is well-suited for a wide audience ranging from physics graduate students to advanced researchers.

This book is based on a lecture series held at Hewlett-Packard Labs, Basic Research Institute in the Mathematical Sciences (BRIMS), Bristol from November 1996 to April 1997, and also includes other contributions.

Contents: Basic Elements of Quantum Information Technology (T P Spiller); The Joy of Entanglement (S Popescu & D Rohrlich); Quantum Information and Its Properties (R Jozsa); Quantum Cryptology (H-K Lo); Experimental Quantum Cryptography (H Zbinden); Quantum Computation: An Introduction (A Barenco); Quantum Error Correction (A M Steane); Fault-Tolerant Quantum Computation (J Preskill); Quantum Computers, Error-Corrrection and Networking: Quantum Optical Approaches (T Pellizzari); Quantum Computation with Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (I L Chuang); Future Directions for Quantum Information Theory (C H Bennett).

Readership: Graduate students and advanced researchers in quantum/classical mechanics, quantum information & computation, theoretical foundations of computer science and information science.
