   Formalization of the resolution calculus for first-order logic
Schlichtkrull A.  Journal of Automated Reasoning 61(1-4): 455-484, 2018. Type: Article

Are you interested in proof assistants in which human experts guide automatic theorem provers to verify subgoals? The paper focuses on research dedicated to a theoretical aim: applying a special proof assistant to produce human-readable rigorous p...

   The physics of quantum information: quantum cryptography, quantum teleportation, quantum computation
Bouwmeester D., Ekert A., Zeilinger A.  Springer-Verlag, London, UK, 2000. Type: Divisible Book

A century ago, the discovery of quantum mechanics initiated a revolution in physics that challenged many deeply-held intuitions. Within the last 20 years, the application of quantum mechanics to computation has opened the door to a similar revolu...
