Quantum computers are analyzed from a computational complexity perspective with very interesting relations.
And if you've never thought about these things before, or if you've heard about them and wanted to know what they're really about, you're in for a wonderful ride.
Aaronson is one of the foremost experts in this space, yet I found his writing quite accessible to a layperson like myself.
This book is relatively rare and "interesting." It is heavy on theory, mathematics, and concepts of computational complexity. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Vladimir Zuzukin
Covers a wide range of topics related to QC and Complexity Theory, and I certainly admire Aaronson's breadth of knowledge. But the writing style is terribly informal and imprecise. Read morePublished 1 month ago by John Doe
I thoroughly enjoyed this exposition, although I would be interested in reading a formal texbook on the same topic.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
I found this book disappointing because it could have been a truly great book. What it's got going for it: Aaronson is very smart and reasonably eloquent. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Matt Ginsberg
A more accurate title would be "Hanging out in the Complexity Zoo: Lecture Notes". While there is discussion on quantum mechanics especially in the view of it being 2-norm... Read morePublished 7 months ago by Chris Larkin
This book will get you thinking about a variety of topics! It's called "Quantum Computing since Democritus" but it is really about computation complexity, including what... Read morePublished 7 months ago by Ronald J. Legere

Charming and engaging, and the informal style and humor gives it a unique flavor. Too much complexity classes for my taste, however. Great book.Published 10 months ago by J. Avron
