Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0716731061, Hardcover)Many books focus on the theories of quantum mechanics and how they differ from those of classical physics and everyday experience, but few manage to offer as many intriguing possibilities for actual applications of quantum mechanics as Schrodinger's Machines. Author Gerard J. Milburn explains quantum electronic devices that may someday replace transistors as the central switching component of digital computers, the potential for unbreakable quantum cryptographic schemes, and the capabilities of quantum computers. Along the way he highlights the key tenets of quantum theory that make these applications possible, but without resorting at all to dense physics (although the prose itself is occasionally dense and sometimes requires close reading).
