Quantum computational number theory
Yan S.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2015. 252 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319258-21-8)

The idea of quantum computing including the quantum Turing machine originated in the last century. However, real interest in quantum computing developed after the seminal paper by Peter Shor [1], where he gave polynomial-time algorithms for the in...


Living matter: algebra of molecules
Buchatsky L., Stcherbic V.,  CRC Press, Inc., Boca Raton, FL, 2015. 176 pp. Type: Book (978-1-498741-37-8)

There is a famous quote from J. B. S. Haldane: “An ounce of algebra is worth a ton of verbal argument.” This is indeed true. Algebra is a powerful tool for understanding many unknowns. In particular, Clifford algebra (CA) also has dive...


Algebraic coding theory: revised edition
Berlekamp E.,  World Scientific Publishing Co, Inc., River Edge, NJ, 2015. 500 pp. Type: Book

Algebraic coding theory has its roots in mathematics and applications in computer science, and its origins in electrical engineering. I was unaware of the area back in 1993, when I joined the PhD program at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)...


 Linear network error correction coding
