  • Emphasizes the Basic Principles of Computational Arithmetic and Computational Structure Design -- Taking an interdisciplinary approach to the nanoscale generation of computer devices and systems, Computer Arithmetics for Nanoelectronics develops a consensus between computational properties provided by data structures and phenomenological properties of nano and molecular technology.
  • Covers All Stages of the Design Cycle, from Task Formulation to Molecular-Based Implementation -- The book introduces the theoretical base and properties of various data structures, along with techniques for their manipulation, optimization, and implementation. It also assigns the computational properties of logic design data structures to 3D structures, furnishes information-theoretical measures and design aspects, and discusses the testability problem. The last chapter presents a nanoscale prospect for natural computing based on assorted computing paradigms from nature.
  • Balanced Coverage of State-of-the-Art Concepts, Techniques, and Practices --  Up-to-date, comprehensive, and pragmatic in its approach, this text provides a unified overview of the relationship between the fundamentals of digital system design, computer architectures, and micro- and nanoelectronics.


Quantum Error Correction and Fault Tolerant Quantum Computing

Quantum Error Correction and Fault Tolerant Quantum Computing

List Price $ 99.95 / £ 44.99 Buy

It was once widely believed that quantum computation would never become a reality. However, the discovery of quantum error correction and the proof of the accuracy threshold theorem nearly ten years ago gave rise to extensive development and research aimed at creating a working, scalable quantum computer. Over a decade has passed since this monumental accomplishment yet no book-length pedagogical presentation of this important theory exists.

Quantum Error Correction and Fault Tolerant Quantum Computing offers the first full-length exposition on the realization of a theory once thought impossible. It provides in-depth coverage on the most important class of codes discovered to date-quantum stabilizer codes. It brings together the central themes of quantum error correction and fault-tolerant procedures to prove the accuracy threshold theorem for a particular noise error model. The author also includes a derivation of well-known bounds on the parameters of quantum error correcting code.

Packed with over 40 real-world problems, 35 field exercises, and 17 worked-out examples, this book is the essential resource for any researcher interested in entering the quantum field as well as for those who want to understand how the unexpected realization of quantum computing is possible.
