While there are many available textbooks on quantum information theory, most are either too technical for beginners or not complete enough. Filling this gap, Elements of Quantum Computation and Quantum Communication gives a clear, self-contained introduction to quantum computation and communication. Written primarily for undergraduate students in physics, mathematics, computer science, and related disciplines, this introductory text is also suitable for researchers interested in quantum computation and communication. Developed from the author’s lecture notes, the text begins with developing a perception of classical and quantum information and chronicling the history of quantum computation and communication. It then covers classical and quantum Turing machines, error correction, the quantum circuit model of computation, and complexity classes relevant to quantum computing and cryptography. After presenting mathematical techniques frequently used in quantum information theory and some basic ideas from quantum mechanics, the author describes quantum gates, circuits, algorithms, and error-correcting codes. He also explores the significance and applications of two unique quantum communication schemes: quantum teleportation and superdense coding. The book concludes with various aspects of quantum cryptography. Exploring recent developments and open questions in the field, this text prepares readers for further study and helps them understand more advanced texts and journal papers. Along with thought-provoking cartoons and brief biographies of key players in the field, each chapter includes examples, references, exercises, and problems with detailed solutions.

Quantum physics allows entirely new forms of computation and cryptography, which could perform tasks currently impossible on classical devices, leading to an explosion of new algorithms, communications protocols and suggestions for physical implementations of all these ideas. As a result, quantum information has made the transition from an exotic research topic to part of mainstream undergraduate courses in physics. Based on years of teaching experience, this textbook builds from simple fundamental concepts to cover the essentials of the field. Aimed at physics undergraduate students with a basic background in quantum mechanics, it guides readers through theory and experiment, introducing all the central concepts without getting caught up in details. Worked examples and exercises make this useful as a self-study text for those who want a brief introduction before starting on more advanced books.

Contents:Introduction to Classical ComputationIntroduction to Quantum MechanicsQuantum ComputationQuantum Communication Readership: Upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in physics, mathematics and computer science. Keywords:Quantum Computation;Quantum Information;Quantum Algorithms;Quantum Communication;Quantum Cryptography;Complex Systems;Dynamical Systems;Quantum Chaos;Nanoscience;Quantum OpticsReviews:“The book by Benenti, Casati and Strini is an excellent introduction to the fascinating field of quantum computation and information. The reader is gently introduced to this field starting from the basics in computation and quantum mechanics to the more advanced topics of quantum computation of dynamical systems. The book is written in a very clear way, accessible both to undergraduate and graduate students in physics, computer science and engineering.”Rosario Fazio Scuola Normale Superiore Pisa, Italy “The first volume of the present textbook aims at filling the gap between elementary introductory books and more advanced reference manuals. The choice of topics and the emphasis on concepts rather than mathematical technicalities makes it good choice for an introductory course of Quantum Information Theory for physicists or computer scientists with little background in this area. Of particular interest is the description of the links between quantum computation and quantum chaos, a research area in which the authors are leading experts, a topic rarely treated in introductory textbooks. The present volume is a welcomed addition to the existing choice of textbooks in quantum information theory and quantum computation.”Professor G Massimo Palma University of Milan, Italy “This book gives a clear and exhaustive introduction to quantum computation and quantum communication. Together with the second volume it covers all the main topics in the field of quantum information theory. It is suited for a wide audience, ranging from computer scientists to physicists and engineers. It is an effective self-contained textbook for an introductory course in quantum information theory and a precious tool for researchers who wish to approach the field.”Professor Chiara Macchiavello University of Pavia, Italy “The first volume of the two-volume edition is an introduction to the main concepts of quantum computation and information. The book offers a simple, clear and systematic treatment of qubits, quantum gates, various quantum algorithms and quantum communication. The chapters on classical information theory and quantum mechanics make the book easy to read. The book is recommended to undergraduate as well as graduate students in physics, mathematics and computer science. The large number of exercises is supplemented by solutions. The reader is encouraged for active work.”Professor Ioannis Antoniou Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece “Besides giving an excellent introduction to the field it provides a unique perspective on the blending and cross-fertilization between the methods of quantum information and quantum chaos, both areas in which the authors are leading experts.”Marcos Saraceno Comision Nac. de Energia Atomica, Argentina “The authors have done a very good job, succeeding to present the main topics of this domain with remarkable concision and clarity.”Bertrand Georgeot CNRS/Universite Paul Sabatier, France “This book is, on the whole, well-written and readable. The material is presented concisely, and illustrated with simple examples and exercises … the material in the current book is much more compact and easily learned than the phonebook-sized compendium of Nielsen and Chuang. It could serve well as the text for an introductory course … It also contains numerous exercises, which mostly seem well thought out and appropriate to the material presented.”Mathematical Reviews “Reading this book one remarks from the very beginning that it is outstanding and well formulated with both mathematical and verbal respects … This book is didactically well organized and written in a clear language. It can be best recommended to people to whom it is addressed by the authors.”Zentralblatt MATH '

Developing many of the major, exciting, pre- and post-millennium developments from the ground up, this book is an ideal entry point for graduate students into quantum information theory. Significant attention is given to quantum mechanics for quantum information theory, and careful studies of the important protocols of teleportation, superdense coding, and entanglement distribution are presented. In this new edition, readers can expect to find over 100 pages of new material, including detailed discussions of Bell's theorem, the CHSH game, Tsirelson's theorem, the axiomatic approach to quantum channels, the definition of the diamond norm and its interpretation, and a proof of the Choi–Kraus theorem. Discussion of the importance of the quantum dynamic capacity formula has been completely revised, and many new exercises and references have been added. This new edition will be welcomed by the upcoming generation of quantum information theorists and the already established community of classical information theorists.
