A self-contained treatment of the fundamentals of quantum computing

This clear, practical book takes quantum computing out of the realm of theoretical physics and teaches the fundamentals of the field to students and professionals who have not had training in quantum computing or quantum information theory, including computer scientists, programmers, electrical engineers, mathematicians, physics students, and chemists. The author cuts through the conventions of typical jargon-laden physics books and instead presents the material through his unique "how-to" approach and friendly, conversational style.

Readers will learn how to carry out calculations with explicit details and will gain a fundamental grasp of:
*

Quantum mechanics
*

Quantum computation
*

Teleportation
*

Quantum cryptography
*

Entanglement
*

Quantum algorithms
*

Error correction

A number of worked examples are included so readers can see how quantum computing is done with their own eyes, while answers to similar end-of-chapter problems are provided for readers to check their own work as they learn to master the information.

Ideal for professionals and graduate-level students alike, Quantum Computing Explained delivers the fundamentals of quantum computing readers need to be able to understand current research papers and go on to study more advanced quantum texts.

The End Of Terrible Wi-Fi May Be Near

Ian King Wi-Fi routers have long suffered from a few big problems. Weak antennas. Radio interference. Their inability to diagnose their own issues. Not least, the boxes tend to be ugly as hell, hideous messes of plastic, blinking lights, and wires jutting off in every direction. All that may be about to change. Bloomberg tested three new routers that use the latest home wireless technologies—Plume Design’s Plume, Ubiquiti Networks’ AmpliFi, and Netgear’s Orbi—and found them far more reliable than their predecessors. They all seem sleek enough to earn a place on the mantle, which will do a lo

uBeam's Wireless Technology Aims To Kill The Power Cord

If uBeam has its way, dead batteries and charging cords will soon be a quaint memory, much like rotary dial telephones. The Los Angeles-based company has developed technology that transmits ultrasonic waves (at a register well beyond what’s audible) that are translated by devices as a microscopic quiver; this vibration is converted back into an electrical charge to power anything with a battery, no wires or wall plugs required. Meredith Perry, who began tinkering with wireless charging as a paleobiology undergrad at the University of Pennsylvania, started the company in 2011. “Just think of my
