A conference, Coding Theory and Quantum Computing, was held in
Charlottesville, VA, to provide an opportunity for computer scientists,
mathematicians, and physicists to interact about subjects of common
interest. This proceedings volume grew out of that meeting.

It is divided into two parts: "Coding Theory" and "Quantum Computing". In the
first part, Harold Ward gives an introduction to coding theory. Other papers
survey recent important work, such as coding theory applications of Gröbner
bases, methods of computing parameters of codes corresponding to algebraic
curves, and problems in the theory of designs. The second part of the book
covers a wide variety of directions in quantum information with an emphasis on
understanding entanglement.

The material presented is suitable for graduate students and researchers
interested in coding theory and in quantum computing.

#### Readership
