  Numerical analysis: theory and experiments
Sutton B.,  SIAM-Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, Philadelphia, PA, 2019. 431 pp. Type: Book (978-1-611975-69-7)

In the depressingly similar world of numerical analysis textbooks, Sutton’s book is a welcome relief. It is based on MATLAB, but differently to most. Many of the included methods are those not covered in other books (although there’s n...

  Quantum robots can fly; play games: an IBM quantum experience
Mahanti S., Das S., Behera B., Panigrahi P.  Quantum Information Processing 18(7): 1-10, 2019. Type: Article

The magic of this hypothetical robot is confined to its “brain,” which is supposed to be a full-fledged quantum computer (QC). The rest of the robot is an extended classical Braitenberg vehicle, that is, two rear wheels and a propeller...

  What can be computed?: A practical guide to the theory of computation
MacCormick J.,  PRINCETON UNIVERSITY PRESS, Princeton, NJ, 2018. 408 pp. Type: Book (978-0-691170-66-4), Reviews: (2 of 2)

Teaching the theory of computation and complexity is tough. It is especially challenging for those ambitious teachers who wish to provide more than just the basic data that programmers ought to know. In fact, the basic data is quite a small set of...
