**Quantum Computing: Progress and Prospects**

by Emily Grumbling, Mark Horowitz

**Publisher**: National Academies Press 2018**ISBN-13**: 9780309479691**Number of pages**: 206

**Description**:

Quantum mechanics, the subfield of physics that describes the behavior of very small (quantum) particles, provides the basis for a new paradigm of computing. First proposed in the 1980s as a way to improve computational modeling of quantum systems, the field of quantum computing has recently garnered significant attention due to progress in building small-scale devices. However, significant technical advances will be required before a large-scale, practical quantum computer can be achieved.
