An Introduction to Quantum Computing for Non-Physicists
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 45

Description:
The aim of this paper is to guide computer scientists and other non-physicists through the conceptual and notational barriers that separate quantum computing from conventional computing. We introduce basic principles of quantum mechanics to explain where the power of quantum computers comes from and why it is difficult to harness. We describe quantum cryptography, teleportation, and dense coding.
