Book Description
This book is for students who want to learn Quantum Computing beyond a conceptual level, but who lack advanced training in mathematics. The only prerequisite is trigonometry, and mathematics beyond that will be covered, including linear algebra. This book is suitable as a course textbook or for independent study
The text begins with a significant overview of classical computing, from how they add numbers to their computational limits, and it mirrors many of the quantum computing topics that are covered later. Then, the investigation of quantum computing begins with a single qubit and quantum gates acting on it, first using geometry and elementary algebra, and later using linear algebra. Computer algebra systems are utilized, and code for both Mathematica and SageMath is included.
After one qubit, multiqubit systems are covered, including how quantum computers add numbers, universal gate sets, and error correction. After this, readers learn how to program quantum circuits on actual quantum processors using IBM Quantum Experience. Afterward, entanglement and quantum protocols are explored. Finally, quantum algorithms are examined, culminating in Shor's algorithm for factoring. Abundant use of the Quirk quantum simulator is used throughout. Finally, a short discussion of careers in quantum computing is provided, along with some possible technical topics to learn next.
About the Authors Thomas G. Wong is an assistant professor of physics at Creighton University. He triplemajored in physics, computer science, and mathematics at Santa Clara University, earned a PhD in Physics at the UCSD .

Quantum Computing for the Quantum Curious
This open access book makes quantum computing more accessible than ever before. It bridges the gap between popular science articles and advanced textbooks by making key ideas accessible with just high school physics as a prerequisite.

Quantum Computer Science: An Introduction (David Mermin)
Quantum Physics has some spectacular applications in computer science. This book is a concise introduction to Quantum Computation, developing the basic elements of this new branch of computational theory without assuming any background in physics.

Learn Quantum Computation using Qiskit
This textbook will teach you the concepts of quantum computing while you learn to use the Qiskit SDK. It is built on a jupyter notebook framework that allows for easy reading, but it also allows readers to edit and run the code right in the textbook.

Quantum Computing: Progress and Prospects
Provides an introduction to the Quantum Computing, including the unique characteristics and constraints of the technology, and assesses the feasibility and implications of creating a functional quantum computer capable of addressing realworld problems.

Quantum Computing Since Democritus (Scott Aaronson)
This book takes readers on a tour through some of the deepest ideas of maths, computer science and physics. Full of insights, arguments and philosophical perspectives, the book covers an amazing array of topics.

The Physics of Quantum Mechanics (James Binney, et al.)
This book aims to give students a good understanding of how quantum mechanics describes the material world. It shows that the theory follows naturally from the use of probability amplitudes to derive probabilities.

Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Theory
This is a collection of lecture notes, all shared a common interest in answering quantum issues. The goal is to give a mathematically clear and selfcontaining explanation of the main concepts of the modern language of quantum theory.

Relativity: The Special and General Theory (Albert Einstein)
The great physicist himself disclaimed this exclusionary view, and in this book, he explains both theories in their simplest and most intelligible form for the layman not versed in the mathematical foundations of theoretical physics.
