Numerical methods: fundamentals and applications
Gupta R., Cambridge University Press, New York, NY, 2019. 828 pp. Type: Book (978-1-108716-00-0)
According to my experience, teaching numerical methods can be an ordeal: students typically do not like the related courses. The reason stems from the fact that the topic is difficult, that is, not easy to follow; additionally, the attendees somet...
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...
