Quantum Computing Since Democritus

Publisher: University of Waterloo 2006
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.

These notes provide readers, who have some mathematical background but little exposure to quantum mechanics and quantum computation, with enough material to begin reading the research literature in quantum computation and quantum information theory.

The draft version of a textbook, introducing the quantum information science viewpoints on condensed matter physics to graduate students. We keep the writing in a self-consistent way, requiring minimum background in quantum information science.

The focus is on the mathematical theory of quantum information. We will begin with basic principles and methods for reasoning about quantum information, and then move on to a discussion of various results concerning quantum information.
