Advances in Quantum Computation

This volume represents the talks given at the Conference on Interactions between Representation Theory, Quantum Field Theory, Category Theory, Mathematical Physics, and Quantum Information Theory, held in September 2007 at the University of Texas at Tyler. The papers in this volume, written by top experts in the field, address physical aspects, mathematical aspects, and foundational issues of quantum computation. This volume will benefit researchers interested in advances in quantum computation and communication, as well as graduate students who wish to enter the field of quantum computation.
