Principles of Quantum Computation And Information: Basic Tools And Special Topics
Quantum computation and information is a new, rapidly developing interdisciplinary field. Its fundamental concepts and central results may not be easily understood without facing numerous technical details.
Building on the basic concepts introduced in Vol I, this second volume deals with various important aspects, both theoretical and experimental, of quantum computation and information in depth. The areas include quantum data compression, accessible information, entanglement concentration, limits to quantum computation due to decoherence, quantum error-correction, and the first experimental implementations of quantum information protocols. This volume also includes a selection of special topics: chaos and quantum to classical transition, quantum trajectories, quantum computation and quantum chaos, and the Zeno effect.
Table of Contents
- Quantum Information Theory
- Quantum Error-Correction
- First Experimental Implementations
Readership: Upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in physics, mathematics and computer science.
Reviews of Volume I: Basic Concepts
The book by Benenti, Casati and Strini is an excellent introduction to the fascinating field of quantum computation and information. The reader is gently introduced to this field starting from the basics in computation and quantum mechanics to the more advanced topics of quantum computation of dynamical systems. The book is written in a very clear way, accessible both to undergraduate and graduate students in physics, computer science and engineering.?
