Books:

1) Quantum Computation and Quantum Information

Michael A. Nielsen and Isaac L. Chuang

2) Modern Quantum Mechanics

J. J. Sakurai

3) The Physics of information Technology (Chapter 15)

Neil Gershenfeld

4) An Introduction to Quantum Computing

Phillip Kaye, Raymond La°amme and Michele Mosca

Re®erences no. 1) and 2) are su±cient for the course. However for a formal introduction to Quantum Mechanics one need to read other books like L.I Schi®, Eugene Merzbacher, Ghatak and Lokanathan; or Feynmann Lectures in Physics Vol 3.

Going through Perspectives in Modern Physics by Arthur Beiser may be useful at your ¯rst introduction to Quantum Mechanics.
