Recent years have witnessed a significantly rising application of Quantum technology. As a consequence, there are two novel methodologies of this technology that have gained prominence, namely quantum engineering and quantum computing. An in-depth comprehension of concepts related to engineering and physics is required to tackle the practical challenges. 

If you are interested in a professional career in the field of quantum computing, you should read these five books on the subject. 

Quantum Computing for Developers by Johan Vou

The book offers useful insights and practical information on quantum computing. It has been designed to explain the ways you can utilize your existing Java skills to develop your first quantum program. It offers developers a chance to excel with the knowledge they have over many others. Instead of serving as a hardware manual or an academic textbook, the book concentrates on the practical application of quantum computing algorithms.

Introduction to Quantum Computing by Ray LaPierre

Introduction to Quantum Computing has been developed by the author on the basis of classroom lectures. It focuses on many important quantum physics concepts starting from double-slit experiments and continuing to entanglement. Furthermore, it clarifies concepts such as quantum gates, qubits, quantum circuits, and quantum key distributions. The books also demonstrate a number of well-recognized quantum computing algorithms. Topics such as topological quantum computing, error correction, and quantum gates, along with potential platforms suitable for their practical applications, are discussed in length in the book.

Numerical Recipes in Quantum Information Theory and Quantum Computing by M.S. Ramkarthik, Payal D. Solanki

This book offers a unique, one-of-a-kind text on the subject of quantum computing. The book demonstrates ninety of Fortran’s computational tools developed for quantum information, quantum computing, linear algebra, and one-dimensional spin half-condensed matter systems. The numerical concepts and information are supported by comprehensive flowcharts with more than 160 subroutines provided. This book is helpful for both scholars and students. It is a recommended textbook for novice and experienced readers.

Dancing with Python – Learn to Code with Python and Quantum Computing by Robert S. Sutor

Dancing with Python is a quantum computing book that covers text beyond conventional classes and typical functions. It demonstrates practical information about designing circuits and gates for conventional and quantum computing utilizing Qiskit and Python. It helps you understand the application of the Grover Search Algorithm as well as the code it may apply to enhance proven methods in quantum computing. Additionally, the book explores the more sophisticated and widely used Python’s applications and strings with enhanced features such as rudimentary natural language processing (NLP) and regular expression. Lastly, the text delves into concepts like supervised and unsupervised machine learning, visualization, and data analysis.

Quantum Computing for Everyone by Chris Bernhardt

Quantum Computing for Everyone is a valuable book for beginners in quantum computing. It contains nine chapters, including but not limited to text on linear algebra, entanglement, spin, quantum algorithm, and quantum gates. Each chapter of the book is designed with a poetic and educational pattern. In order to make it easy and ready for novice learners and non-specialists, the writer has kept the text easy to understand as they learn. Furthermore, the complex topics are made easier to comprehend with black and white diagrams.
