**Quantum Information and Computation**

by John Preskill

**Publisher**: California Institute of Technology 1998**Number of pages**: 481

**Description**:

In this course, we will study the properties that distinguish quantum information from classical information. And we will see how these properties can be exploited in the design of quantum algorithms that solve certain problems faster than classical algorithms can.
