An Introduction to Quantum Computing for Non-Physicists
by Eleanor G. Rieffel, Wolfgang Polak
Publisher: arXiv 2000
Number of pages: 45
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.

We survey the growing field of Quantum Hamiltonian Complexity. 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 present a concise but complete conceptual treatment of quantum computing implemented with Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics (CQED). The paper is intended as a brief overview for professionals who are coming over to the field from other areas.
