Quantum Optical Networks
Series Editor: Robert G.W. Brown, Roy Pike
Chapman and Hall/CRC – 2014 – 275 pages
In light of the growing interest in quantum and optical computing, this is one of the first books to bring together the various theoretical considerations in the area and provide a detailed exposé of the fundamental physics needed to work in the area. Written by leading researchers, the book covers the physics of linear optical elements, which are essential in the interface of quantum optics and quantum information processing. It also looks at experimental systems and applications in quantum computing and information theory.
