Quantum computing, the reduction of computing elements to sizes far smaller than that of present-day chips, down to the size of individual atoms, presents new problems, problems on the quantum level. But thanks to new discoveries by Gerard Milburn and other cutting-edge scientists, quantum computing is about to become a reality.In this book, the first one for the general ...more

Although it was a good book, I really do not understand the point of writing books like this. Too complicated for someone without basic knowledge of quantum theory and computer science, and probably too basic for someone familiar with those two fields. Having mentioned and explained things like GHZ state, Bell state, Hilbert space, EPR paradox, Turing-Church principle, Feynman diagram... and at the same time explaining how do you convert decimal numbers to binary and add them, in the same book, ...more

Decent bridge between quantum mechanics and computer science: Is meant to be for the lay-person, but unfortunately Milburn isn't as good at exhaustively explaining the bizarre world of the quantum as, say, a John Griffin. This book is more for people with some understanding of both computer science and quantum mechanics, as this is a nice explanation of where they converge. You can't quickly gloss over both disciplines and expect to have your readers understand them, but that's what Milburn ...more
