PRINCIPLES OF QUANTUM COMPUTATION AND INFORMATION - VOL I     Basic Concepts
by Giuliano Benenti, Giulio Casati (Universitá degli Studi dell Insubria, Italy & Istituto Nazionale per la Fisica della Materia, Italy) & Giuliano Strini (Universitá di Milano, Italy) 

"Quantum computation and information is a new, rapidly developing interdisciplinary field. Therefore, it is not easy to understand its fundamental concepts and central results without facing numerous technical details. This book provides the reader a useful and not-too-heavy guide. It offers a simple and self-contained introduction; no previous knowledge of quantum mechanics or classical computation is required"



PRINCIPLES OF QUANTUM COMPUTATION AND INFORMATION - VOL II     Basic Tools and Special Topics
by Giuliano Benenti, Giulio Casati (Universitá degli Studi dell Insubria, Italy & Istituto Nazionale per la Fisica della Materia, Italy) & Giuliano Strini (Universitá di Milano, Italy) 

"Building on the basic concepts introduced in Vol I, this second volume deals with various important aspects, both theoretical and experimental, of quantum computation and information in depth. The areas include quantum data compression, accessible information, entanglement concentration, limits to quantum computation due to decoherence, quantum error-correction, and the first experimental implementations of quantum information protocols. This volume also includes a selection of special topics: chaos and quantum to classical transition, quantum trajectories, quantum computation and quantum chaos, and the Zeno effect."








The World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology promotes universal access to scientific knowledge with equal opportunities for the international scientific community. The World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology also promotes open research initiatives to make scientific data and information affordable and accessible in all countries on an equitable basis.



Conceived by Mathematica creator and scientist Stephen Wolfram as a way to bring computational exploration to the widest possible audience, the Wolfram Demonstrations Project is an open-code resource that uses dynamic computation to illuminate concepts in science, technology, mathematics, art, finance, and a remarkable range of other fields.

NATURE - FUTURES
   


"What does the next century have in store? The record of the past 50 years shows that almost anything could happen... 
Now, Nature is proud to present the return of Futures to the mother ship: a forum for the best new science-fiction writing, exploring some of the themes that might challenge us as the future unfolds. Prepare to be amused, stimulated, even outraged, but know this: the future is sooner than you think."
