Introduction to Quantum Computation and Information

Written on July 10, 2011. Written by .

I think that this book is not quite an introduction. It claims that you only need a knowledge of basic quantum mechanics, but I felt lost for large portions of it. One chapter was actually worth reading: “Quantum Computation: An Introduction”. This chapter explains how quantum computing algorithms work. Also of interest was page 20 sections 4.1-4.2 which explain applications and implementations. The most popular implementation, the ion trap, is further described on page 275. I am guessing that there is a better place to learn about quantum computing since this was a gruelling read.
