Summary Quantum computers are the proposed centerpieces of a revolutionary, 21st-century quantum information technology. This book takes the reader into the world of quantum mechanics and continues on an in-depth 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 code-breaking with quantum computers.--Back cover
