Description:
This book is a concise introduction to quantum computation, developing the basic elements of this new branch of computational theory without assuming any background in physics. It begins with an introduction to the quantum theory from a computer-science perspective. It illustrates the quantum-computational approach with several elementary examples of quantum speed-up, before moving to the major applications.

Quantum Cryptography
by N. Gisin, G. Ribordy, W. Tittel, H. Zbinden - arXiv
Quantum cryptography could well be the first application of quantum mechanics at the individual quanta level. The fast progress in theory and experiments over the recent years are reviewed, with emphasis on open questions and technological issues.
