Toward automatic verification of quantum programs
Ying M. Formal Aspects of Computing 31(1): 3-25, 2019. Type: Article
Even if a world of quantum computing for everyone is years (if not decades) away, research on designing proper ways to program such systems has been ongoing for quite some time. History shows that programming is hard; making correct programs, that...

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...

The theory of quantum information
Watrous J., Cambridge University Press, New York, NY, 2018. 598 pp. Type: Book (978-1-107180-56-7)
Information theory has its modern origins in the 1948 work  of Claude Shannon, who gave results that addressed two key problems: the extent to which information can be compressed without loss, and the rate at which information can be transmitte...

Synthesis of quantum circuits vs. synthesis of classical reversible circuits
De Vos A., De Baerdemacker S., Van Rentergem Y., Morgan&Claypool Publishers, 2018. 125 pp. Type: Book (978-1-681733-81-4)
Quantum computing is gaining momentum these days with the innovation of practical quantum computers. Therefore, a synthesis mechanism for more complex logic machines using quantum logic gates is of immense importance. In contrast, reversible compu...

Universal quantum computing: supervening decoherence -- surmounting uncertainty
Amoroso R., World Scientific Publishing Co, Inc., Hackensack, NJ, 2017. 632 pp. Type: Book
Quantum computing is one of the hottest research fields right now, although the theory behind it had its start in the early 1980s, when Richard Feynman asked in a lecture why simulating quantum effects with classical (non-quantum) computers is so ...

Knowledge management in theory and practice (3rd ed.)
Dalkir K., The MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 2017. 552 pp. Type: Book (978-0-262036-87-0)
When building software, whether we realize it or not, we embed various kinds of knowledge into it. Software engineers doing requirements gathering and domain analysis have realized this, as have programming language researchers when they advocate ...

Resilient wireless sensor networks: the case of network coding
Al-Kofahi O., Kamal A., Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2015. 68 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319239-63-7)
The area of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) has long been a field of research in communications, computer science, and power engineering, not mention the diversity of sensors needed to acquire the raw measurements. The reason is that many tradeoff...

Answering enumeration queries with the crowd
Trushkowsky B., Kraska T., Franklin M., Sarkar P. Communications of the ACM 59(1): 118-127, 2016. Type: Article
Human crowds are valuable assets for providing additional responses in real time to cognate query results derived solely from relational database management systems (RDBMSs). But how should query results from human crowds, designed to simultaneous...
