One of the most cited books in physics of all time, Quantum Computation and Quantum Information remains the best textbook in this exciting field of science. This 10th anniversary edition includes an introduction from the authors setting the work in context. This comprehensive textbook describes such remarkable effects as fast quantum algorithms, quantum teleportation, quantum cryptography and quantum error-correction. Quantum mechanics and computer science are introduced before moving on to describe what a quantum computer is, how it can be used to solve problems faster than 'classical' computers and its real-world implementation. It concludes with an in-depth treatment of quantum information. Containing a wealth of figures and exercises, this well-known textbook is ideal for courses on the subject, and will interest beginning graduate students and researchers in physics, computer science, mathematics, and electrical engineering.

In The Press

'Ten years after its initial publication, 'Mike and Ike' (as it's affectionately called) remains the quantum computing textbook to which all others are compared. No other book in the field matches its scope: from experimental implementation to complexity classes, from the philosophical justifications for the Church-Turing Thesis to the nitty-gritty of bra/ket manipulation. A dog-eared copy sits on my desk; the section on trace distance and fidelity alone has been worth many times the price of the book to me.' Scott Aaronson, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
