    I would like some help seeking out some good online notes to Introduction to Quantum Computing as well as a good text to the subject. Does anyone here know of such notes or a text off hand?

    Right off the bat I found this one to start off with
    http://www.dsc.ufcg.edu.br/~lula/ind...eBook-LinG.pdf

    Since I don't know the field I can't tell whether it's a good text or not, hence my question.
    The most important thing to keep in mind is that you don't know everything and nobody else does either.

    I don't know what your beforehand knowledge is. But this is a book that assumes an engineers knowledge of basic physics, and proposses to treat it accordingly.
    What is your background and what is the level you wish to achieve?

    I've taken the graduate level sequence in qauntum mechanics and am interested in focusing on quantum computing when I go back to grad school. Perhaps devloping devices etc. I'd like a full working understanding of all the basic principles.

    well, you can't build devices. quantum computing is still in a research phase. there is no working system anywhere. and th transistor for quantum computation don't even exist in theory yet. you'll just get a lot of optics probably. perhaps eome group and system theory and statistucs.

    That's the goal. At least working toward theories of them.

    How much QM courses have you had so far?

    I went through the graduate sequence of Quantum A and B using Quantum Mechanics by Cohen-Tannoudji, Diu and Laloe. How about you?

    I research Quantum computation for a living, and am currently working on a paper.

    Cool! How long have you been doing that?
