Publisher’s description: The NATO Advanced Study Institute in Chania brought together a number of researchers and students in both experimental and theoretical quantum information science. During lectures and talks, and in numerous discussions over Raki, the participants shared their views on just about everything; from quantum algorithms and intricacies of computational complexity to the finer parts of Cretan cuisine, and from new technologies for realizing quantum computers to the spirit of traditional Greek dances. The knowledge that nature can be coherently controlled and manipulated at the quantum level was perceived as both a powerful stimulus and one of the greatest challenges facing experimental physics. Fortunately the exploration of quantum technology has many staging posts along the way, each of which will yield scientifically and technologically useful results and some of them are described in this volume.
The articles of this volume will not be indexed individually.
