Quantum Computer Science: An Introduction

Buy
In the 1990's it was realized that quantum physics has some spectacular applications in computer science. This book is a concise introduction to quantum computation, developing the basic elements of this new branch of computational theory without assuming any background in physics. It begins with an introduction to the quantum theory from a computer-science perspective. It illustrates the quantum-computational approach with several elementary examples of quantum speed-up, before moving to the major applications: Shor's factoring algorithm, Grover's search algorithm, and quantum error correction. The book is intended primarily for computer scientists who know nothing about quantum theory, but will also be of interest to physicists who want to learn the theory of quantum computation, and philosophers of science interested in quantum foundational issues. It evolved during six years of teaching the subject to undergraduates and graduate students in computer science, mathematics, engineering, and physics, at Cornell University.

Computer Incident Response and Product Security (Networking Technology: Security)
Computer Incident Response and Product Security (Networking Technology: Security)

This book is actually two books in one. The first six chapters are about forming and running a computer incident response team. Starting with Chapter 7, “Product Security Vulnerabilities,” the book is devoted to managing product security vulnerabilities. The reason these two subjects are combined into a single book is that they...

There are some things you should never do at the same time: Move. Have a baby. Adopt a puppy. Change jobs. Leah did all of this while also writing this book.

And while anyone who knows Leah shouldn’t be surprised by her ability to pull all of this off, this speaks to a tenacity shared by those who find

Heat Shock Proteins in Cancer
Heat Shock Proteins in Cancer

Heat shock proteins are emerging as important molecules in the development of cancer and as key targets in cancer therapy. These proteins enhance the growth of cancer cells and protect tumors from treatments such as drugs or surgery. However, new drugs have recently been developed particularly those targeting heat shock protein 90. As heat...


Programming in Python 3: A Complete Introduction to the Python Language (2nd Edition)
Programming in Python 3: A Complete Introduction to the Python Language (2nd Edition)

Python is probably the easiest-to-learn and nicest-to-use programming language in widespread use. Python code is clear to read and write, and it is concise without being cryptic. Python is a very expressive language, which means that we can usually write far fewer lines of Python code than would be required for an equivalent application written...
