Something that puts everything into quantum computing

  1. May 25, 2014 #1
    i can not say that i'm super good at knowing my quantum physics, but i know enough, and even if i don't i can just search it up!
    so, recently i have taken an interest into the quantum computer , and the theories of how it works, is there anywhere that talks about it?

    There's this nifty facility on the internet called "Google Search". You should give some consideration to learning how to use it. When I Googled "how does quantum computing work" I got 14,000,000 hits plus a list of other search terms that might be useful. I assume at least a lot of the stuff on the first couple of pages of that search is relevant to your question.

    A book for the theory:
    check out Nielsen and Chuang, Quantum Computation and Quantum Information, CUP.

    We had a end of course lecture on Quantum computation, the contents of which came from that book.

    This is what I would suggest as well. Very comprehensive book covering all the main topics of the theory, including foundational knowledge in other requisite areas such as group theory.

    Also, Quantum Computing for Computer Scientists by Yanofsky and Manucci is nice less physically rigorous introduction
