Summary 
Quantum computers are the proposed centerpieces of a revolutionary, 21stcentury quantum information technology. This book takes the reader into the world of quantum mechanics and continues on an indepth study of quantum information and quantum computing, including the future of quantum technology. This text focuses on what is "quantum" about quantum mechanics; topics discussed include the EPR paradox, entanglement, teleportation, Bell's Theorem, quantum computing, and codebreaking with quantum computers.Back cover
