Quantum details and computation is a swiftly increasing and cross-disciplinary topic. This e-book offers a self-contained creation to the sphere for physicists, mathematicians and laptop scientists who need to know extra approximately this fascinating topic. After a step by step advent to the quantum bit (qubit) and its major homes, the writer offers the mandatory historical past in quantum mechanics. The middle of the topic, quantum computation, is illustrated by means of a close therapy of 3 quantum algorithms: Deutsch, Grover and Shor. the ultimate chapters are dedicated to the actual implementation of quantum pcs, together with the latest facets, resembling superconducting qubits and quantum dots, and to a quick account of quantum details. Written at a degree compatible for undergraduates in actual sciences, no prior wisdom of quantum mechanics is believed, and in simple terms user-friendly notions of physics are required.
