Introduction to Quantum Computing with Q# and QDK (Springer)
Monday, 22 May 2023

This book introduces the fundamentals of the theory of quantum computing, illustrated with code samples written in Q#, a quantum-specific programming language, and its related Quantum Development Kit. Filip Wojcieszyn begins by covering historical aspects of quantum theory and quantum computing, as well as offers a gentle, algebra-based, introduction to quantum mechanics, specifically focusing on concepts essential for the field of quantum programming.

Later chapters cover the core QC topics, including the qubit, quantum gates and quantum circuits, and concepts from quantum information theory, in particular entanglement and the no-cloning theorem, followed by discussion about quantum key distribution and its various protocols. Finally, the canon of most important QC algorithms and algorithmic techniques is covered in-depth - from the Deutsch-Jozsa algorithm, through Grover’s search, to Quantum Fourier Transform, quantum phase estimation and Shor’s algorithm.
