This book provides a thorough introduction to quantum information theory and quantum computation in general, especially covering the theoretical and computational, rather than experimental, aspectsâ€¦ (More)

The number of steps any classical computer requires in order to find the prime factors of an l-digit integer N increases exponentially with l, at least using algorithms known at present. Factoringâ€¦ (More)

Algorithms such as quantum factoring and quantum search illustrate the great theoretical promise of quantum computers; but the practical implementation of such devices will require carefulâ€¦ (More)

The assumption of maximum parallelism support for the successful realization of scalable quantum computers has led to homogeneous, "sea-of-qubits" architectures. The resulting architectures overcomeâ€¦ (More)

Decoherence in quantum computers is formulated within the semigroup approach. The error ge tors are identified with the generators of a Lie algebra. This allows for a comprehensive descrip whichâ€¦ (More)

Fifty years of developments in nuclear magnetic resonance sNMRd have resulted in an unrivaled degree of control of the dynamics of coupled two-level quantum systems. This coherent control of nuclearâ€¦ (More)

Compilers and computer-aided design tools are essential for fine-grained control of nanoscale quantum-mechanical systems. A proposed four-phase design flow assists with computations by transforming aâ€¦ (More)

Irrespective of the underlying technology used to implement a large-scale quantum architecture system, one of the central challenges of accurately modeling the architecture is the ability to map andâ€¦ (More)

We describe a cheating strategy enabled by the features of massive open online courses (MOOCs) and detectable by virtue of the sophisticated data systems that MOOCs provide. The strategy, Copyingâ€¦ (More)
