While there are many available textbooks on quantum information
theory, most are either too technical for beginners or not complete
enough. Filling this gap, Elements of Quantum Computation and
Quantum Communication gives a clear, self-contained introduction
to quantum computation and communication. Written primarily for
undergraduate students in physics, mathematics, computer science,
and related disciplines, this introductory text is also suitable for
researchers interested in quantum computation and communication.
Developed from the author’s lecture notes, the text begins with
developing a perception of classical and quantum information and
chronicling the history of quantum computation and communication. It
then covers classical and quantum Turing machines, error correction,
the quantum circuit model of computation, and complexity classes
relevant to quantum computing and cryptography. After presenting
mathematical techniques frequently used in quantum information
theory and some basic ideas from quantum mechanics, the author
describes quantum gates, circuits, algorithms, and error-correcting
codes. He also explores the signicance and applications of two
unique quantum communication schemes: quantum teleportation
and superdense coding. The book concludes with various aspects of
quantum cryptography.
Exploring recent developments and open questions in the eld, this
text prepares readers for further study and helps them understand
more advanced texts and journal papers. Along with thought-
provoking cartoons and brief biographies of key players in the eld,
each chapter includes examples, references, exercises, and problems
with detailed solutions.
