Item description for Problems & Solutions in Quantum Computing & Quantum Information by Willi-Hans Steeb & Yorick Hardy...
Quantum computing and quantum information are two of the fastest-growing and most exciting research areas in physics. The possibilities of using non-local behaviour of quantum mechanics to factorize integers in random polynomial time have added to this new interest. This invaluable book provides a collection of problems in quantum computing and quantum information together with detailed solutions. It consists of two parts: in the first part finite-dimensional systems are considered, while the second part deals with finite-dimensional systems.
All the important concepts and topics are included, such as quantum gates and quantum circuits, entanglement, teleportation, Bell states, Bell inequality, Schmidt decomposition, quantum Fourier transform, magic gates, von Neumann entropy, quantum cryptography, quantum error correction, coherent states, squeezed states, POVM measurement, beam splitter and KerrHamilton operator. The topics range in difficulty from elementary to advanced. Almost all of the problems are solved in detail and most of them are self-contained. All relevant definitions are given.
Students can learn from this book important principles and strategies required for problem solving. Teachers will find it useful as a supplement, since important concepts and techniques are developed through the problems. It can also be used as a text or a supplement for linear and multilinear algebra or matrix theory.

Problems and Solutions in Quantum computing and Quantum information Apr 7, 2008
It is important to have a book on QC and QIT with concrete themes and problems. It is,also, a source for a theory not always well understood or misinterpreted.
This book helped me. Jan 1, 2005
This text is refreshing if you want a lot of worked examples to help you through another text like, (Quantum Computation and Quantum Information, Michael A. Nielsen, Isaac L. Chuang, ISBN: 0521635039). I was excited when this text came out and had an order in before it got off the press. When I got the book I immediately found useful worked examples that helped me get past some of the problems I was having with the notation in my other books. I have had this book for several months and have worked though enough of it to give it a 5 star rating. There are many problems in the text I am not advanced enough to work yet.
I started quantum computing for a research project and taught myself most of the material I know. This text is not easy and does not start at ground zero. It had problems I could understand at my level when I purchased it, but at that point I had an idea of how gates worked and a good solid review of linear algebra to stand on. I think that the kindest book out of the dozen on my shelf to a total beginner is, (Approaching Quantum Computing, Dan C. Marinescu, Gabriela M. Marinescu , ISBN: 013145224X).
This is the only book of its kind available at the time of this review. I wish the book had more simpler examples and just a bit of an explanation for some of the solutions. Sometimes the solution is given but it still does not seem apparent to me. I wish the text was just a bit kinder.
If you are working on a research project and struggling with some of the notation or the exact details of calculation this text may be extremely useful to you, but you will need another book to explain the theory.
