About the book

Quantum information is a new information technology based on quantum mechanics, which puts the "state" of a quantum system into its physical information, encodes information, calculates and transmits it. Quantum information technology mainly includes quantum computing and quantum communications. Because of their potential, application value and great scientific significance, they are attracting widespread attention from the academic and the industry. In order to describe the basic concept and principle of quantum computing and quantum communications, this book tries to connect the top-level experts in this field around the world and intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in quantum information technology, which covers the wide gamut of important multidisciplinary topics including quantum algorithms, quantum computer, quantum code, post-quantum cryptography, quantum key distribution, quantum teleportation, and so on.

This book will offer a definitive reference for practitioners, researchers, and students in quantum computing and quantum communications.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Kristina Kardum Cvitan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
