Title  Introduction to Quantum Computing with Q# and QDK 
Author(s)  Wojcieszyn, Filip 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVI, 280 p. 57 illus., 8 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book introduces the fundamentals of the theory of quantum computing, illustrated with code samples written in Q#, a quantumspecific programming language, and its related Quantum Development Kit. Quantum computing (QC) is a multidisciplinary field that sits at the intersection of quantum physics, quantum information theory, computer science and mathematics, and which may revolutionize the world of computing and software engineering. The book begins by covering historical aspects of quantum theory and quantum computing, as well as offers a gentle, algebrabased, introduction to quantum mechanics, specifically focusing on concepts essential for the field of quantum programming. Quantum state description, state evolution, quantum measurement and the Bell???s theorem are among the topics covered. The readers also get a tour of the features of Q# and familiarize themselves with the QDK. Next, the core QC topics are discussed, complete with the necessary mathematical formalism. This includes the notions of qubit, quantum gates and quantum circuits. In addition to that, the book provides a detailed treatment of a series of important concepts from quantum information theory, in particular entanglement and the nocloning theorem, followed by discussion about quantum key distribution and its various protocols. Finally, the canon of most important QC algorithms and algorithmic techniques is covered indepth  from the DeutschJozsa algorithm, through Grover???s search, to Quantum Fourier Transform, quantum phase estimation and Shor???s algorithm. The book is an accessible introduction into the vibrant and fascinating field of quantum computing, offering a blend of academic diligence with pragmatism that is so central to software development world. All of the discussed theoretical aspects of QC are accompanied by runnable code examples, providing the reader with two different angles  mathematical and programmatic  of looking at the same problem space.

Title  Nonclassical Effects and Dynamics of Quantum Observables 
Author(s)  Lakshmibala, S;Balakrishnan, V 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XI, 130 p. 51 illus., 44 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book explores interesting possibilities of extracting information about quantum states from data readily obtained from experiments, such as tomograms and expectation values of appropriate observables. The procedures suggested for identifying nonclassical e???ects such as wave packet revivals, squeezing and entanglement solely from tomograms circumvent detailed state reconstruction. Several bipartite entanglement indicators are de???ned based on tomograms, and their e???cacy assessed in models of atom???eld interactions and qubit systems. Tools of classical ergodic theory such as time series and network analysis are applied to quantum observables treated as dynamical variables. This brings out novel aspects involving di???erent time scales. The book is aimed at researchers in the areas of quantum optics and quantum dynamics

Title  Information Dynamics : In Classical and Quantum Systems 
Author(s)  Dittrich, Thomas 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XV, 557 p. 195 illus., 124 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This wideranging book introduces information as a key concept not only in physics, from quantum mechanics to thermodynamics, but also in the neighboring sciences and in the humanities. The central part analyzes dynamical processes as manifestations of information flows between microscopic and macroscopic scales and between systems and their environment. Quantum mechanics is interpreted as a reconstruction of mechanics based on fundamental limitations of information processing on the smallest scales. These become particularly manifest in quantum chaos and in quantum computing. Covering subjects such as causality, prediction, undecidability, chaos, and quantum randomness, the book also provides an informationtheoretical view of predictability. More than 180 illustrations visualize the concepts and arguments. The book takes inspiration from the author's graduatelevel topical lecture but is also well suited for undergraduate studies and is a valuable resource for researchers and professionals

Title  Particles, Fields and Forces : A Conceptual Guide to Quantum Field Theory and the Standard Model 
Author(s)  Schmitz, Wouter 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XI, 349 p. 196 illus., 195 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides unique and comprehensive conceptual explanations of quantum field theory and the standard model of particle physics. How can fundamental particles exist as waves in the vacuum? How can such waves have particle properties such as inertia? What is behind the notion of virtual particles? Why and how do particles exert forces on one another? Not least: What are forces anyway? These are some of the central questions that have intriguing answers in Quantum Field Theory and the Standard Model of Particle Physics. Unfortunately, these theories are highly mathematical, so that most people???even many scientists???are not able to fully grasp their meaning. This book untangles these theories in a conceptual nonmathematical way, using more than 190 figures and extensive explanations and will provide the nonspecialist with great insights that are not to be found in the popular science literature. This fully revised and expanded second edition adds remarkable insights into the transition from quantum to classical world using the concepts of quantum decoherence, while also explaining "collapse of the wave function", tunnelling and quantum computing

Title  Realizing an Andreev Spin Qubit : Exploring Subgap Structure in Josephson Nanowires Using Circuit QED 
Author(s)  Hays, Max 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XXIII, 184 p. 90 illus., 89 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The thesis gives the first experimental demonstration of a new quantum bit (???qubit???) that fuses two promising physical implementations for the storage and manipulation of quantum information ??? the electromagnetic modes of superconducting circuits, and the spins of electrons trapped in semiconductor quantum dots ??? and has the potential to inherit beneficial aspects of both. This new qubit consists of the spin of an individual superconducting quasiparticle trapped in a Josephson junction made from a semiconductor nanowire. Due to spinorbit coupling in the nanowire, the supercurrent flowing through the nanowire depends on the quasiparticle spin state. This thesis shows how to harness this spindependent supercurrent to achieve both spin detection and coherent spin manipulation. This thesis also represents a significant advancement to our understanding and control of Andreev levels and thus of superconductivity. Andreev levels, microscopic fermionic modes that exist in all Josephson junctions, are the microscopic origin of the famous Josephson effect, and are also the parent states of Majorana modes in the nanowire junctions investigated in this thesis. The results in this thesis are therefore crucial for the development of Majoranabased topological information processing
