Quantum Computing Since Democritus
by Scott Aaronson
Publisher: University of Waterloo 2006
ISBN/ASIN: 0521199565
Number of pages: 398
Description:
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.

Quantum Walks: A Comprehensive Review
by Salvador E. Venegas-Andraca - arXiv
Quantum walks is an advanced tool for building quantum algorithms that constitute a universal model of quantum computation. In this paper we review theoretical advances on the foundations of both discrete- and continuous-time quantum walks.
