Quantum Computing Since Democritus

Publisher: University of Waterloo 2006
Number of pages: 398
This course tries to connect quantum computing to the wider intellectual world. We'll start out with various scientific, mathematical, or philosophical 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. We'll then examine in what ways, if any, quantum computing affects how we should think about the problem.

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.

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.
