Reviews and Recommendations

We've comprehensively compiled reviews of Quantum Computation and Quantum Information from the world's leading experts.

Chris Bernhardt Anyone who is seriously getting into quantum computation uses this book. It is the Bible and it’s an enormous book, some 700 pages long. It’s very well written, though mathematically it’s at a slightly higher level than the others I’ve recommended. This is really a book for someone who seriously wants to get into quantum computing.
