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.
