**The Temple of Quantum Computing**

by Riley T. Perry

2004**ISBN/ASIN**: B002ACW2RK**Number of pages**: 250

**Description**:

In quantum computers we exploit quantum effects to compute in ways that are faster or more efficient than, or even impossible, on conventional computers. Quantum computers use a specific physical implementation to gain a computational advantage over conventional computers. Properties called superposition and entanglement may, in some cases, allow an exponential amount of parallelism. Also, special purpose machines like quantum cryptographic devices use entanglement and other peculiarities like quantum uncertainty.
