Good Books on Quantum Computing and Quantum Mechanics

  1. May 25, 2015 #1
    Hello guys, I will be starting my M.S Program in Solid State Electronics and was also curious about looking into quantum computing/superconductors. So can you guys suggest introductory levels books on quantum computing and and superconductors?

    I have an okay background in Physics (just graduated with a bachelors in Physics). I am currently reading Sakurai's Modern QM book in order to better understand basic QM theories. I have not had a problem with it so far and find it more appealing than Griffiths text used in my previous QM course.

    As for possessing a background to study superconductivity, I might look into Kittel's book on SS our undergrad department uses(though I've heard not-so-good things about it). Yeah I don't know where to go from there.

    Any suggestions?
