Item description for Introduction to Quantum Computation and Information by Hoi-Kwong Lo...
This book aims to provide a pedagogical introduction to the subjects of quantum information and quantum computation. Topics include non-locality of quantum mechanics, quantum computation, quantum cryptography, quantum error correction, fault-tolerant quantum computation as well as some experimental aspects of quantum computation and quantum cryptography. Only knowledge of basic quantum mechanics is assumed. Whenever more advanced concepts and techniques are used, they are introduced carefully. This book is meant to be a self-contained overview. While basic concepts are discussed in detail, unnecessary technical details are excluded. It is well-suited for a wide audience ranging from physics graduate students to advanced researchers.
This book is based on a lecture series held at Hewlett-Packard Labs, Basic Research Institute in the Mathematical Sciences (BRIMS), Bristol from November 1996 to April 1997, and also includes other contributions.

More About Hoi-Kwong Lo
Herausgeber Professor Samuel L. Braunstein Reader at the School of Informatics, University of Wales, Bangor. Member of UK Quantum Optics & Computation Networks. Member of the ESF Quantum Information Theory program. Expert in the field of Quantum Optics und Quantum Computing. Consultant for the journal "Fortschritte der Physik." Dr. Hoi-Kwong Lo Senior Vice President Research and development of MagiQ Technologies, Inc., New York; Hoi-Kwong Lo was born in Hong Kong in 1967. He obtained his B. A. in Mathematics (Triple First Class Honors) from Trinity College, Cambridge University, UK in 1989 and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Physics from the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, USA in 1991 and 1994 respectively. After getting his Ph.D., he became a Member of the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, NJ. From 96 to 99, he was with the Hewlett-Packard Laboratories, Bristol, UK, first as a Research Consultant and then as a Senior Member of Technical Staff. He is currently Senior Vice President, Research and Development of MagiQ Technologies, Inc. This is the first quantum computing start-up with a stated goal of building a "quantum Internet." His current research interests include quantum computation and also cryptography. He is one of the persons who have demonstrated the impossibility of a whole class of quantum cryptographic schemes including quantum bit commitment. This result has been widely reported in the scientific press including Science and Science News. Recently, in a paper in "Science," he and his colleague have given a rigorous proof of the security of quantum key distribution, the most well-known application of quantumcryptography. This result has been reported in a "perspectives" article in Science. He has co-edited a textbook on quantum computation and information, which has been favorably reviewed in Nature, and he is the main inventor of a US patent.
Hoi-Kwong Lo has an academic affiliation as follows - MagiQ Technologies, Inc., NY, USA MagiQ Technologies, Inc. MagiQ Techn.
Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to Quantum Computation and Information?
A very nice introduction dealing with many important topics Mar 2, 2006
This book is now somewhat dated, but contains chapters by several workers who laid the foundation of the subject. The book is certainly not only one for beginners, as the contributors have done a very good job at getting to the heart of their topics.
