A (VERY) BRIEF TOUR OF QUANTUM MECHANICS, COMPUTATION, AND CATEGORY THEORY

JENNIFER CHUBB AND VALENTINA HARIZANOV

This chapter is intended to be a brief treatment of the basic mechanics, framework, and concepts relevant to the study of quantum computing and information for review and reference. Part 1 (sections 14) surveys quantum mechanics and computation, with sections organized according to the commonly known postulates of quantum theory. The second part (sections 57) provides a survey of category theory. Additional references to works in this volume are included throughout, and general references appear at the end.
