Mathematics of Quantum Computing

An Introduction

Authors: Scherer, Wolfgang

  • Serves as pedagogical introduction including a clear derivation of all main results
  • Mathematically rigorous, following the structure: Definition - Theorem - Proof, but interwoven with motivation and discussions
  • Alleviates the need to consult any outside material because of its entirely self-contained presentation

About this Textbook

This textbook presents the elementary aspects of quantum computing in a mathematical form. It is intended as core or supplementary reading for physicists, mathematicians, and computer scientists taking a first course on quantum computing. It starts by introducing the basic mathematics required for quantum mechanics, and then goes on to present, in detail, the notions of quantum mechanics, entanglement, quantum gates, and quantum algorithms, of which Shor's factorisation and Grover's search algorithm are discussed extensively. In addition, the algorithms for the Abelian Hidden Subgroup  and Discrete Logarithm problems are presented and the latter is used to show how the Bitcoin digital signature may be compromised. It also addresses the problem of error correction as well as giving a detailed exposition of adiabatic quantum computing. The book contains around 140 exercises for the student, covering all of the topics treated, together with an appendix of solutions.


About the authors

Wolfgang Scherer was active in research and teaching in the USA and Germany before settling in London where until recently he worked in risk management for a financial institution. His scientific interests include geometric methods in mathematical physics and fundamental problems in quantum mechanics. He takes pleasure in communicating the joy of mathematics to the younger generation, and is an aficionado of two-wheeled vehicles, with and without motor.
