This review provides a gentle introduction to one-way quantum computing in distributed architectures. One-way quantum computation shows significant promise as a model for distributed systems, particularly probabilistic entangling operations.

The focus is on the mathematical theory of quantum information. We will begin with basic principles and methods for reasoning about quantum information, and then move on to a discussion of various results concerning quantum information.

A quantum computing tutorial for everyone, including those who have no background in physics. In quantum computers we exploit quantum effects to compute in ways that are faster or more efficient than, or even impossible, on conventional computers.
