Elements of quantum computation and quantum communication.


Elements of quantum computation and quantum communication.

Pathak, Anirban.

CRC Press


322 pages




Pathak (theoretical physics, Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, India) presents a textbook for an introductory undergraduate course for students of physics, mathematics, computer science, and other disciplines in which a knowledge of quantum computation and communication might be helpful. He assumes no prior knowledge special to any of these fields, or any previous exposure to quantum mechanics. His topics are basic ideas of classical and quantum computational models and complexity classes, mathematical tools and simple quantum mechanics required for quantum computing, quantum gates and quantum circuits, quantum algorithms, quantum error correction, quantum teleportation and superdense coding, and quantum cryptography.
