    • What's GogLiB

    • GogLiB is a digital native publisher. Its mission is to give voice to the most specialized scientific essay: the one that reaches its readers a little at a time, year by year, and for which the paper publication is always uneconomical.
      GogLiB listens to all those who have something to say, and will publish any work that readers deserve to have, because electronic publishing allows it: there is no longer the tyranny of printing.


    • Quantum Computing for Programmers and Investors
      Alberto Palazzi
      This book is aimed at people who simply know the basics of computer programming. It does not require any notion of physics and allows its readers to understand with total accuracy the use that could be made of a quantum computer, by explaining how to write a software to emulate its operation. The resulting knowledge is of vital importance to investors too, because it allows them to judge independently on the risk of investing in this technology.

    • Alberto Palazzi
      A scholar of history and philosophy and designer of computer algorithms for problems of higher complexity, the author of this book brings together the skills necessary to analyze the scientific significance of relativity and to reconstruct the historical and anthropological context in which it was born and became an institution of our time.

    • BACK COVER
      This book is aimed at people who simply know the basics of computer programming. It does not require any notion of physics and allows its readers to understand with total accuracy and in the simplest way the use that could be made of a quantum computer, by explaining step by step how to write a software to emulate its operation. The usual expression that a qubit "is an object that can be simultaneously in both binary states 0 and 1" will lose all the aura of mystery that surrounds it, and readers will understand exactly its meaning and implications for computing without the need for any knowledge of physics. The book describes quantum computing by considering it strictly from a computer science point of view, simply as a machine that is capable of transforming a given input into a given output using any suitable physical principle to work, and thus allows to become completely familiar with quantum gates and with the most famous quantum algorithms. The only condition is that the readers are familiar with some programming language and with the basic concepts of classical computer science: those who have this knowledge will easily follow the description of quantum algorithms and understand the software emulation that is implemented in the book, and will also have fun running and testing it with their own PC.
      The knowledge acquired through this book is of vital importance to investors because it allows them to judge independently on the risk of investing in this technology. It has been written for programmers because the knowledge of basics of computer science is useful to understand exactly what a quantum computer, once built, could be used for. But this understanding is also essential for investors who must evaluate whether and how much it is appropriate to risk investing in the development of quantum computing. Therefore, even investors (private investors, consultants, managers of financing funds for technological enterprises, etc.) who want to decide on the allocation of resources in quantum computing with full knowledge of the stakes, must know this book, and if they do not personally own the necessary prerequisites, they can use it by hiring some trusted computer expert to read it, understand it and report on the result.
