Computing with Quantum Cats
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Quantum computers, which rely on entities existing in two states simultaneously, operate faster than conventional computers and can crack otherwise unbreakable codes. As he traces the developments that have led to the exploration of this new technological frontier, Gribbin outlines the theoretical physics on which such machines are based, explains how they differ from the computers we use every day and explores both their exciting practical applications and their limitations.
