Quantum Computing takes a comprehensive look at the revolutionary technology of quantum computing. Author Brian Clegg traces the origins of quantum mechanics and details how researchers are harnessing its power to create ultrafast, ultracompact devices with unprecedented potential for solving complex problems. Along the way, he offers insights into why some experts believe that quantum computing may represent an even greater leap forward than Moore’s law in terms of overall computational efficiency.
