Recommendation of books and how to learn more
I am really new to quantum computing, but it is a topic that really excites me! I have some theoretical knowledge of quantum mechanics (not so much) and of how quantum computers work, but I still have a lot of questions. I read some books about it, but can someone recommend me some other books?(without a lot of math) Because I want to learn more about it, and if some of you have time to chat and discuss it would be really helpful too, you can contact me.
Have a look at “Quantum Computing for Everyone” by Chris Gernhardt (MIT Press).
I’m the author of the forthcoming book “Quantum Computing: Program Next-Gen Applications for Real World Applications.” You can get a beta version at https://pragprog.com/titles/nmquantum/ It’ll also soon be available on several bookstores.
I propose a new and intuitive way to think about quantum computers emphasizing concepts familiar to computer scientists, I take you to the core aspects of quantum computing including superposition and entanglement and then show you how to design quantum algorithms.
Lots of pictures and figures to explain core concepts.
