  abstract =     "Computer science will be radically transformed if
                 ongoing efforts to build large-scale quantum computers
                 eventually succeed and if the properties of these
                 computers meet optimistic expectations. Nevertheless,
                 computer scientists still lack a thorough understanding
                 of the power of quantum computing, and it is not always
                 clear how best to use the power that is understood.
                 This dilemma exists because quantum algorithms are
                 difficult to grasp and even more difficult to write.
                 Despite large-scale international efforts, only a few
                 important quantum algorithms are documented, leaving
                 many essential questions about the potential of quantum
                 algorithms unanswered. These unsolved problems are
                 ideal challenges for the application of automatic
                 programming technologies. Genetic programming
                 techniques, in particular, have already produced
                 several new quantum algorithms and it is reasonable to
                 expect further discoveries in the future. These methods
                 will help researchers to discover how additional
                 practical problems can be solved using quantum
                 computers, and they will also help to guide theoretical
                 work on both the power and limits of quantum computing.
                 Automatic Quantum Computer Programming provides an
                 introduction to quantum computing for non-physicists,
                 as well as an introduction to genetic programming for
                 non-computer-scientists. The book explores several ways
                 in which genetic programming can support automatic
                 quantum computer programming and presents detailed
                 descriptions of specific techniques, along with several
                 examples of their human-competitive performance on
                 specific problems. Source code for the author's QGAME
                 quantum computer simulator is included as an appendix,
                 and pointers to additional online resources furnish the
                 reader with an array of tools for automatic quantum
                 computer programming.",
