We survey the growing field of Quantum Hamiltonian Complexity, which includes the study of Quantum Constraint Satisfaction. In particular, our aim is to provide a computer science-oriented introduction to the subject in order to help bridge the language barrier between computer scientists and physicists in the field.

We'll start out with various scientific 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.

These notes will present a brief introduction to the basic theoretical concepts behind the 'second quantum revolution'. They also provide an introduction to 'circuit QED', which offers an architecture for constructing quantum information processors.

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.

A concise introduction to quantum computation, developing the basic elements of this branch of computational theory without assuming any background in physics. It begins with an introduction to the quantum theory from a computer-science perspective.
