A new discipline, Quantum Information Science, has emerged in the last two decades of the twentieth century at the intersection of Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science. Quantum Information Processing is an application of Quantum Information Science which covers the transformation, storage, and transmission of quantum information; it represents a revolutionary approach to information processing. This book covers topics in quantum computing, quantum information theory, and quantum error correction, three important areas of quantum information processing. Quantum information theory and quantum error correction build on the scope, concepts, methodology, and techniques developed in the context of their close relatives, classical information theory and classical error correcting codes. Presents recent results in quantum computing, quantum information theory, and quantum error correcting codes. Covers both classical and quantum information theory and error correcting codes. The last chapter of the book covers physical implementation of quantum information processing devices. Covers the mathematical formalism and the concepts in Quantum Mechanics critical for understanding the properties and the transformations of quantum information.

Editorial Reviews

"At the intersection of physics, mathematics, and computer science, explain the authors in the preface, the discipline of quantum information science has emerged during the last two decades. The discipline has developed as a response to the limitations and challenges of information processing, which include "[h]eat dissipation, leakage, and other physical phenomena [that] limit our ability to build increasingly faster and, implicitly, increasingly smaller solid-state devices...." They continue: "Quantum information is information encoded to some property of quantum particles and obeys the laws of quantum mechanics." With this book, graduate students and researchers are presented with coverage of three areas: quantum computing, quantum information theory, and quantum error correction. Dan C. Marinescu (computer science, U. of Central Florida) and Gabriela M. Marinescu (affiliation not stated) have co-written many books and articles on the subject."--Book News, Reference & Research
