Item description for Problems And Solutions in Quantum Computing And Quantum Information by Yorick Hardy Willi-Hans Steeb...
Quantum computing and quantum information are two of the fastest growing and most exciting research fields in physics. The possibilities of using the non-local behavior of quantum mechanics to factor integers in random polynomial time have also added to this new interest. This book supplies a collection of problems in quantum computing and quantum information together with their detailed solutions, which will prove to be invaluable to students as well as to research workers in these fields. All the important concepts and topics such as quantum gates and quantum circuits, entanglement, teleportation, Bell states, Bell inequality, Schmidt decomposition, quantum Fourier transform, magic gate, von Neumann entropy, quantum cryptography, quantum error correction, coherent states, squeezed states, POVM measurement, beam splitter and Kerr Hamilton operator are included. The topics range in difficulty from elementary to advanced. Almost all problems are solved in detail and most of the problems are self-contained.

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.
