Second edition of the successful textbook which has emerged from a lecture series. The compact introduction addresses graduate students with a reasonably good background in physics, notably in quantum mechanics, plus some knowledge in introductory statistical mechanics and solidstate physics. The authors explain basic concepts from quantum mechanics and Computer Science which are used throughout the whole field of quantum computing and quantum communication. This Second Edition reflects the rapid development of the main ideas and techniques, e.g. by including the most recent experiments on cold atoms.
Dieter Suter is an experimentalist and well known for his NMRwork. He is currently working on quantum computation projects. Juergen Stolze is an expert on the theory of quantum computation. His topic research area is quantum spin chains. Both authors are known to have excellent didactic skills.

Excerpts from Inner Flap (Front)
"The book gives an impressive description of current experiments. Despite of the high density of information, the authors succeeded to describe the fundamental concepts and methods. As it contains numerous references and links, this book also forms a solid starting point for further studies." Quoted from Physik Journal on the first edition New to this edition *Working with single Photons *Report on progress in the trapping and manipulation of neutral particles *Quantum simulations of strongly correlated manyparticle models *Endofchapter problems
It's a very good book it's by far the best textbook at this level, and will become the principal text for our new course. Jonathan Jones, Oxford Centre for Quantum Computation
