Libro que me han prestado: The Feynman Processor por Gerard J. Milburn

por davidgp el 25/02/2008

Por el momento solamente he leído un libro sobre el tema de computación cuántica. En aquel momento me había parecido un tema bastante interesante, sobre todo la forma de como la algoritmia básica tenía que cambiar para adaptarse a la forma de computación que los computadores cuánticos, en teoría, pueden dar. La verdad es que por lo que he leído en la contraportada de este libro, parece que esta lectura va a ser igual de interesante.

The Feynman Processor

De la contraportada

“A reader seeking an accessible account of [the] exciting developments [of quantum computing] could hardly do better than to consult The Feynman Processor… [Gerard] Milburn… writes in a light and inviting style, but the content of the book is serious and highly ambitious. Milburn knows his subject well, and guides the reader through the intricacies of quantum randomness, quantum correlations and quantum information processing at the surprisinly sophisticated level.” –Nature

“Milburn has… done a first-class job in explainning in nontechnical terms tha “weirdness” of quantum mechanics”-Physics Today

“[The reader] is amply rewarded… [by Milburn’s] lucid style, the pains he has taken to explain things as clearly as possible, and the way he leads us to the frontiers of this new subject.” –Choice

Quantum computing, the reduction of computing elements to sizes far smaller than that of present-day chips, down to the size of individual atoms, presents new problems – problems on the quantum level. But thanks to new discoveries by Gerard Milburn and other cutting-edge scientist, quantum computing is closer than ever before to becoming a reality. The promise of quantum computers includes new and incredible devices that will deliver a world of lightning-fast computers, unbreakable codes, and even the beginning of Star Trek-like matter teleportation. This is the first book for tha layman on this subject, an area pioneered by the great physicist Richard Feynman, who first posed the challenge to scientists to devise the smallest, fastest computer elements, to take us to the absolute physical limits of computers. This book promises to astound and educate every reader eager to keep abreast of the lastest breakthroughs in physics and computers.

Gerard J. Milburn is Professor of Theoretical Physics and Head of the Department of Laser Science at the University of Queensland, Australia. He is one of the key scientist in the effort to make quantum computers a reality. Professor Milburn is also the author of Schrödinger Machines
