About the Authors
  • Quantum information and computation is a rapidly expanding and cross-disciplinary subject. This book, first published in 2006, gives a self-contained introduction to the field for physicists, mathematicians and computer scientists who want to know more about this exciting subject. After a step-by-step introduction to the quantum bit (qubit) and its main properties, the author presents the necessary background in quantum mechanics. The core of the subject, quantum computation, is illustrated by a detailed treatment of three quantum algorithms: Deutsch, Grover and Shor. The final chapters are devoted to the physical implementation of quantum computers, including the most recent aspects, such as superconducting qubits and quantum dots, and to a short account of quantum information. Written at a level suitable for undergraduates in physical sciences, no previous knowledge of quantum mechanics is assumed, and only elementary notions of physics are required. The book includes many short exercises, with solutions available to instructors through solutions@cambridge.org.

    • Gently introduces the main concepts in a progressive and accessible way
    • Suitable for a broad audience, as no previous knowledge of quantum mechanics is assumed
    • Contains many short exercises, with solutions available to instructors through solutions@cambridge.org

    Reviews & endorsements

    "A Short Introduction to Quantum Information and Quantum Computation is a laudable textbook by an author who has much experience writing about physics. It outperforms similar texts that contain more pages but fail to communicate the essence of the subject to anyone not working in the field."
    Gregg Jaeger, Physics Today

    "It is a self-contained presentationa of the main concepts of the field, not only aimed at physicists, but also at mathematicians and computer scientists at the graduate level."
    Ellie D'Hondt, Mathematical Reviews
