Quantum Information and Computation
by

Publisher: California Institute of Technology
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.
