Quantum Computer Science
by David Mermin
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2007
Number of pages: 236
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.

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.

An overview of the current quest for a proper understanding of frontier between classical and quantum correlations in composite states. We focus on various approaches to define general quantum correlations, based on different physical perspectives.
