Quantum Inf Process (2012) 11:313–315 DOI 10.1007/s11128-011-0277-3 BOOK REVIEW Howard Wiseman and Gerard Milburn: Quantum measurement and control Cambridge University Press, 2010 T. C. Ralph Published online: 20 August 2011 © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2011 Understanding the measurement and control of quantum systems is an essential tool for realizing the full potential of quantum information science. Over the last couple of decades there has been major progress in our understanding of the properties and limits of these key techniques—many pioneered by the authors, Howard Wiseman and Gerard Milburn. As a result this book has been keenly anticipated by workers in the ﬁeld—it does not disappoint. The ﬁrst few chapters of the book are devoted to measurement techniques and how these affect the evolution of quantum systems, moving systematically to more sophis- ticated systems. Two chapters are then devoted to quantum feedback control using many of the techniques developed in the earlier chapters. The ﬁnal chapter looks at applications in quantum computing. Two appendices deal with the fundamentals of quantum theory and stochastic differential equation techniques. In Chapter 1 the authors introduce a general treatment of quantum measurement theory. They begin with an introduction to classical measurement theory from
