This is a list of all of my informal papers which relate in some way to quantum computing. It will be updated as I post additional papers.

I still don’t have a “What is Quantum Computing?” paper or tutorial, but one good place to start on issues we face is:

Another interesting paper:

Or for something fairly light:

Wondering when we might finally see a viable quantum computer? Read:

Wondering when quantum computing will finally become mainstream? Read:

I have a preliminary stab at a “glossary” (more of a detailed, full “dictionary”) for quantum computing, with over 3,000 terms:

Much of my writing focuses on issues that we face in this emerging and rapidly evolving field.

Here is the full list, in reverse chronological order (most recent first):
