William Chuck Easttom



ONE-VOLUME INTRODUCTION TO QUANTUM COMPUTINGClearly explains core concepts, terminology, and techniquesCovers the foundational physics, math, and information theory you needProvides hands-on practice with quantum programmingThe perfect beginner’s guide for anyone interested in a quantum computing careerDr. Chuck Easttom brings together complete coverage of basic quantum computing concepts, terminology, and issues, along with key skills to get you started.Drawing on 30+ years as a computer science instructor, consultant, and researcher, Easttom demystifies the field’s underlying technical concepts and math, shows how quantum computing systems are designed and built, explains their implications for cyber security, and previews advances in quantum-resistant cryptography. Writing clearly and simply, he introduces two of today’s leading quantum programming languages, Microsoft Q# and QASM, and guides you through sample projects. Throughout, tests, projects, and review questions help you deepen and apply your knowledge.Whether you’re a student, professional, or manager, this guide will prepare you for the quantum computing revolution–and expand your career options, too.Master the linear algebra and other mathematical skills you’ll needExplore key physics ideas such as quantum states and uncertaintyReview data structures, algorithms, and computing complexityWork with probability and set theory in quantum computingFamiliarize yourself with basic quantum theory and formulaeUnderstand quantum entanglement and quantum key distributionDiscover how quantum computers are architected and builtExplore several leading quantum algorithmsCompare quantum and conventional asymmetric algorithmsSee how quantum computing might break traditional cryptographyDiscover several approaches to quantum-resistant cryptographyStart coding with Q#, Microsoft’s quantum programming languageSimulate quantum gates and algorithms with QASM
