' Quantum computation and information is a new, rapidly developing interdisciplinary field. Therefore, it is not easy to understand its fundamental concepts and central results without facing numerous technical details. This book provides the reader a useful and not-too-heavy guide. It offers a simple and self-contained introduction; no previous knowledge of quantum mechanics or classical computation is required. Volume I may be used as a textbook for a one-semester introductory course in quantum information and computation, both for upper-level undergraduate students and for graduate students. It contains a large number of solved exercises, which are an essential complement to the text, as they will help the student to become familiar with the subject. The book may also be useful as general education for readers who want to know the fundamental principles of quantum information and computation and who have the basic background acquired from their undergraduate course in physics, mathematics, or computer science. Contents:Introduction to Classical ComputationIntroduction to Quantum MechanicsQuantum ComputationQuantum Communication Readership: Upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in physics, mathematics and computer science. Keywords:Quantum Computation;Quantum Information;Quantum Algorithms;Quantum Communication;Quantum Cryptography;Complex Systems;Dynamical Systems;Quantum Chaos;Nanoscience;Quantum OpticsReviews:“The book by Benenti, Casati and Strini is an excellent introduction to the fascinating field of quantum computation and information. The reader is gently introduced to this field starting from the basics in computation and quantum mechanics to the more advanced topics of quantum computation of dynamical systems. The book is written in a very clear way, accessible both to undergraduate and graduate students in physics, computer science and engineering.”Rosario Fazio Scuola Normale Superiore Pisa, Italy “The first volume of the present textbook aims at filling the gap between elementary introductory books and more advanced reference manuals. The choice of topics and the emphasis on concepts rather than mathematical technicalities makes it good choice for an introductory course of Quantum Information Theory for physicists or computer scientists with little background in this area. Of particular interest is the description of the links between quantum computation and quantum chaos, a research area in which the authors are leading experts, a topic rarely treated in introductory textbooks. The present volume is a welcomed addition to the existing choice of textbooks in quantum information theory and quantum computation.”Professor G Massimo Palma University of Milan, Italy “This book gives a clear and exhaustive introduction to quantum computation and quantum communication. Together with the second volume it covers all the main topics in the field of quantum information theory. It is suited for a wide audience, ranging from computer scientists to physicists and engineers. It is an effective self-contained textbook for an introductory course in quantum information theory and a precious tool for researchers who wish to approach the field.”Professor Chiara Macchiavello University of Pavia, Italy “The first volume of the two-volume edition is an introduction to the main concepts of quantum computation and information. The book offers a simple, clear and systematic treatment of qubits, quantum gates, various quantum algorithms and quantum communication. The chapters on classical information theory and quantum mechanics make the book easy to read. The book is recommended to undergraduate as well as graduate students in physics, mathematics and computer science. The large number of exercises is supplemented by solutions. The reader is encouraged for active work.”Professor Ioannis Antoniou Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece “Besides giving an excellent introduction to the field it provides a unique perspective on the blending and cross-fertilization between the methods of quantum information and quantum chaos, both areas in which the authors are leading experts.”Marcos Saraceno Comision Nac. de Energia Atomica, Argentina “The authors have done a very good job, succeeding to present the main topics of this domain with remarkable concision and clarity.”Bertrand Georgeot CNRS/Universite Paul Sabatier, France “This book is, on the whole, well-written and readable. The material is presented concisely, and illustrated with simple examples and exercises … the material in the current book is much more compact and easily learned than the phonebook-sized compendium of Nielsen and Chuang. It could serve well as the text for an introductory course … It also contains numerous exercises, which mostly seem well thought out and appropriate to the material presented.”Mathematical Reviews “Reading this book one remarks from the very beginning that it is outstanding and well formulated with both mathematical and verbal respects … This book is didactically well organized and written in a clear language. It can be best recommended to people to whom it is addressed by the authors.”Zentralblatt MATH '

This book is a guide to the use of Monte Carlo techniques in radiation transport. This topic is of great interest for medical physicists. Praised as a "gold standard" for accurate radiotherapy dose calculations, Monte Carlo has stimulated a high level of research activity that has produced thousands of papers within the past few years. The book is designed primarily to address the needs of an academically inclined medical physicist who wishes to learn the technique, as well as experienced users of standard Monte Carlo codes who wish to gain insight into the underlying mathematics of Monte Carlo algorithms. The book focuses on the fundamentals—giving full attention to and explaining the very basic concepts. It also includes advanced topics and covers recent advances such as transport of charged particles in magnetic fields and the grid-based solvers of the Boltzmann equation.

Quantum computation and information is a new, rapidly developing interdisciplinary field. Its fundamental concepts and central results may not be easily understood without facing numerous technical details. Building on the basic concepts introduced in Vol I, this second volume deals with various important aspects, both theoretical and experimental, of quantum computation and information in depth. The areas include quantum data compression, accessible information, entanglement concentration, limits to quantum computation due to decoherence, quantum error-correction, and the first experimental implementations of quantum information protocols. This volume also includes a selection of special topics: chaos and quantum to classical transition, quantum trajectories, quantum computation and quantum chaos, and the Zeno effect.

'... These volumes provide the very latest in this critical technology and are an invaluable resource for scientists in both academia and industry concerned with the semiconductor future and all of science.'Foreword by Leonard C Feldman (Director Institute for Advanced Materials, Devices and Nanotechnology, Rutgers University, USA)Highlights. As we delve more deeply into the physics and chemistry of functional materials and processes, we are inexorably driven to the nanoscale. And nowhere is the development of instrumentation and associated techniques more important to scientific progress than in the area of nanoscience. The dramatic expansion of efforts to peer into nanoscale materials and processes has made it critical to capture and summarize the cutting-edge instrumentation and techniques that have become indispensable for scientific investigation in this arena. This Handbook is a key resource developed for scientists, engineers and advanced graduate students in which eminent scientists present the forefront of instrumentation and techniques for the study of structural, optical and electronic properties of semiconductor nanostructures.
