This book presents a concise introduction to an emerging and increasingly important topic, the theory of quantum computing. The development of quantum computing exploded in 1994 with the discovery of its use in factoring large numbers--an extremely difficult and time-consuming problem when using a conventional computer. In less than 300 pages, the authors set forth a solid foundation to the theory, including results that have not appeared elsewhere and improvements on existing works. The book starts with the basics of classical theory of computation, including NP-complete problems and the idea of complexity of an algorithm. Then the authors introduce general principles of quantum computing and pass to the study of main quantum computation algorithms: Grover's algorithm, Shor's factoring algorithm, and the Abelian hidden subgroup problem. In concluding sections, several related topics are discussed (parallel quantum computation, a quantum analog of NP-completeness, and quantum error-correcting codes). This is a suitable textbook for a graduate course in quantum computing. Prerequisites are very modest and include linear algebra, elements of group theory and probability, and the notion of an algorithm (on a formal or an intuitive level). The book is complete with problems, solutions, and an appendix summarizing the necessary results from number theory

On quantum computing and pseudorandomness by William Jason Fefferman( )

The relationship between efficient verification and quantum computing is one of the most important and least well-understood questions in the theory of computation. In particular, is there a problem that can be solved efficiently on a quantum computer that cannot be verified? In this thesis we give evidence that \BQP \not\subset \PH, relating the classes of languages decidable with a quantum computer to a generalization of \NP. In so doing we connect a question in pseudorandomness, first studied [BSW'03] to the problem of finding an oracle relative to which \BQP \not\subset \PH. The primary technical challenge is to construct a unitary matrix, realized by an efficient quantum circuit and whose rows are supported on nearly disjoint subsets. Using this matrix and assuming the validity of the aforementioned question in pseudorandomness, we show an instantiation of the Nisan-Wigderson pseudorandom generator that can be broken with quantum computers, but not with the relevant mode of classical computation
