Book description
Learn Quantum Computing with Python and Q# introduces quantum computing from a practical perspective. Use Python to build your own quantum simulator and take advantage of Microsoft’s open source tools to finetune quantum algorithms. The authors explain complex math and theory through stories, visuals, and games. You’ll learn to apply quantum to realworld applications, such as sending secret messages and solving chemistry problems.Table of contents
