Superconducting Qubits and Circuits
by Steven M. Girvin
Publisher: Yale University 2011
Number of pages: 132
These lectures are devoted to understanding the basic components of quantum machines that can be constructed from superconducting electrical circuits. These circuits can be used to create resonators which store individual microwave photons and to create superconducting quantum bits.

Quantum cryptography could well be the first application of quantum mechanics at the individual quanta level. The fast progress in theory and experiments over the recent years are reviewed, with emphasis on open questions and technological issues.

We'll start out with various scientific problems that predate quantum computing: for example, the measurement problem, P versus NP, the existence of secure cryptography, the Humean problem of induction, or the possibility of closed timelike curves.

The draft version of a textbook, introducing the quantum information science viewpoints on condensed matter physics to graduate students. We keep the writing in a self-consistent way, requiring minimum background in quantum information science.
