Book Description
Written by noted Quantum Computing theorist 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.
Beginning in antiquity with Democritus, it progresses through logic and set theory, computability and complexity theory, quantum computing, cryptography, the information content of quantum states and the interpretation of quantum mechanics. There are also extended discussions about time travel, Newcomb's Paradox, the anthropic principle and the views of Roger Penrose.
The author's informal style makes this fascinating book accessible to readers with scientific backgrounds, as well as students and researchers working in physics, computer science, mathematics and philosophy.
About the Authors Scott Aaronson is an American theoretical computer scientist and David J. Bruton Jr. Centennial Professor of Computer Science at the University of Texas at Austin. His primary areas of research are quantum computing and computational complexity theory.

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.

Introduction to Classical and Quantum Computing (Tom Wong)
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.

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.

Learn Quantum Computation using Qiskit
This is a free digital textbook that 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.
