This volume contains papers by invited speakers of the symposium "Zeta Functions, Topology and Quantum Physics" held at Kinki U- versity in Osaka, Japan, during the period of March 3-6, 2003. The aims of this symposium were to establish mutual understanding and to exchange ideas among researchers working in various fields which have relation to zeta functions and zeta values. We are very happy to add this volume to the series Developments in Mathematics from Springer. In this respect, Professor Krishnaswami Alladi helped us a lot by showing his keen and enthusiastic interest in publishing...

This graduate-level text describes the physics of superconductivity and superfluidity, macroscopic quantum phenomena found in many conductors at low temperatures and in liquid helium 4 and helium 3. In the first part of the book the author presents the mean field theory of generalized pair condensation. This is followed by a description of the properties of ordinary superconductors using BCS theory. The book then proceeds with expositions of strong coupling theory and the Ginzburg-Landau theory. The remarkable properties of superfluid helium 3 are then described, as an example of a superfluid...

The contributors of this volume are working at the forefront of various realizations of quantum computers. They survey the recent developments in each realization, in the context of the DiVincenzo criteria, including nuclear magnetic resonance, Josephson junctions, quantum dots, and trapped ions. There are also some theoretical contributions which have relevance in the physical realizations of a quantum computer. This book fills the gap between elementary introductions to the subject and highly specialized research papers to allow beginning graduate students to understand the cutting-edge of...

This book provides an overview on physical realizations of quantum computing by means of molecular systems. It will be useful for graduate students and researchers interested in quantum computing from different areas of physics, physical chemistry, informatics and computer science. Each chapter is written in a self-contained manner and hence can be accessible for researchers and graduate students with even less background in the topics.

This volume provides an overview on the decoherence suppression methods in quantum computing, open quantum systems, quantum error correction and fault-tolerant quantum computing. It also includes concepts in geometric quantum computing by composite pulses. Quantum wipe effect is explained as an approach for suppressing decoherence of the system. A short contribution on the implementation of holonomic quantum gates with NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) is presented.

he lecture notes contributed to this volume are prepared in a self-contained manner hence readers with limited knowledge on...

The open research center project "Interdisciplinary fundamental research toward realization of a quantum computer" has been supported by the Ministry of Education, Japan for five years. This is a collection of the research outcomes by the members engaged in the project. To make the presentation self-contained, it starts with an overview by Mikio Nakahara, which serves as a concise introduction to quantum information and quantum computing. Subsequent contributions include subjects from physics, chemistry, mathematics, and information science, reflecting upon the wide variety of scientists...
