The multidisciplinary field of quantum computing strives to exploit some of the uncanny aspects of quantum mechanics to expand our computational horizons. Quantum Computing for Computer Scientists takes readers on a tour of this fascinating area of cutting-edge research. Written in an accessible yet rigorous fashion, this book employs ideas and techniques familiar to every student of computer science. The reader is not expected to have any advanced mathematics or physics background. After presenting the necessary prerequisites, the material is organized to look at different aspects of quantum computing from the specific standpoint of computer science. There are chapters on computer architecture, algorithms, programming languages, theoretical computer science, cryptography, information theory, and hardware. The text has step-by-step examples, more than two hundred exercises with solutions, and programming drills that bring the ideas of quantum computing alive for today's computer science students and researchers.

Excellent treatment. Unfortunate that my friends professor of computer science at Socal university is not there as co- Author. He also should have co-written this great book as his name is Mr Driugerovi Kromzujerzaruv, he being a mixed russian/German descent , and the name seems even more exotic and will make this otherwise big scam seem genuine. Not just students but also to NASA fools. And since Mr DK is also involved in some missile program for germans this book would have surely hit top of the Ny best sellers for several months or a few years. not to mention millions of facebook fans, a multi-million record breaking deal with universal studios/ hollywood for movie with actors like Rutger Hauer who definitely fits the role as the german and russian dangerman of futuristic computing
