Quantum Computing Since Democritus

Quantum Computing Since Democritus
by Scott Aaronson

Publisher: University of Waterloo 2006
ISBN/ASIN: 0521199565
Number of pages: 398

This course tries to connect quantum computing to the wider intellectual world. We'll start out with various scientific, mathematical, or philosophical problems that predate quantum computing: for example, the measurement problem, P versus NP, the existence of secure cryptography, the Humean problem of induction, or the possibility of closed timelike curves. We'll then examine in what ways, if any, quantum computing affects how we should think about the problem.
