This book is a collection of contributions from a Summer Workshop on “Physics, Mathematics, and All That Quantum Jazz”. Subjects of the symposium include quantum information theory, quantum annealing, Bose gases, and thermodynamics from a viewpoint of quantum physics. Contributions to this book are prepared in a self-contained manner so that readers with a modest background may understand the subjects.
