## Recommended books/papers/lecture notes

- Lecture notes by John Preskill on Quantum Information Theory.
- Daniel A. Lidar, Todd A. Brun,
*Quantum Error Correction*, Cambridge University Press, 2013. - Lecture notes by Michael M. Wolf on Quantum Channels.
- The first proof of quantum advantage not relying on any oracle or complexity assumption:

Quantum advantage with shallow circuits – Bravyi, König, Gosset - Valter Moretti,
*Spectral Theory and Quantum Mechanics*, Springer, 2013. - Roger A. Horn, Charles R. Johnson,
*Matrix Analysis*, Cambridge University Press, 2013. - Martin Schottenloher,
*A Mathematical Introduction to Conformal Field Theory*, Springer, 2008. - If you are interested in string theory, this is a good book to get started:

Barton Zwiebach,*A First Course in String Theory*, Cambridge University Press, 2009.

Best undergraduate texts I can remember:

- Bramanti, Salsa, Pagani,
*Analisi Matematica 1 & 2,*Zanichelli, 2008 (in Italian). - Feynman, Feynman Lectures on Physics, 1964.
- David J. Griffiths,
*Introduction to Electrodynamics*, Pearson, 2013 (4th edition). - Sakurai, Napolitano,
*Modern Quantum Mechanics,*Pearson, 1985. - Rotondi, Pedroni, Pievatolo,
*Probabilità, Statistica e Simulazione*, Springer, 2005 (in Italian).

## Miscellaneous

Quantum community:

- Scirate: useful platform to get an idea of the interest raised in the community by the most recent papers on arxiv.
- Quantum Algorithm Zoo
- QuaEC: Python library for Quantum Error Correction.

Software:

- IPE: very useful software for preparing presentations, combining the best of Latex and of a usual keynote app. Darren Strash has a nice tutorial to get started. You can also use it as a template (just put a white rectangle onto the KIT logo). Moreover, you can switch from manual to automatic page numbering installing the ipelet pagenumbers.
- Jabref: nice application to organise your scientific references.
- Texstudio: Latex editor.

Guide for Latex by Lorenzo Pantieri (in Italian).

Mixed:

- Articles that I published on some Italian magazines, based on the knowledge I collected after a month of internship in a greenhouse company (Kwekerji de Kabel) in Delft:

Netherlands, Saving Energy. This is the Problem. Pages 46-50 (in Italian).

In the Netherlands Growers as Brokers (in Italian).
