Quantum Computing: Pro and Con

Preprint English OPEN
Preskill, John;

I assess the potential of quantum computation. Broad and important applications must be found to justify construction of a quantum computer; I review some of the known quantum algorithms and consider the prospects for finding new ones. Quantum computers are notoriously ... View more
