9780099455370: Programming The Universe: A Quantum Computer Scientist Takes on the Cosmos
Review:

"Seth Lloyd is an authoritative and often funny guide to this head-bending stuff...startlingly novel" (Stephen Poole Guardian)

"Lloyd does an excellent job of explaining all this in clear, accessible language... I urge you to buy the book" (John Gribbin Independent)

"Visionary and fun" ( New York Times)

"His excellent book explains the science in terms as simple as one could hope for" (Andrew Crumey Scotland on Sunday)

"Lloyd thinks he has found a new way to explain one of the most basic questions in science: Why is the world so complex?... Fascinating and profoundly comforting... Seth Lloyd certainly gives his readers a lot of bang for their buck" ( The New York Times Book Review)

From the Publisher:

IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE BIT...

The universe is made of bits of information and it has been known for more than a century that every piece of the the universe - every electron, atom and molecule - registers these bits and that information. It is only in the last years, however, with the discovery and development of quantum computers, that scientists have gained a fundamental understanding of just how that information is registered and processed.

Building on recent breakthroughs in quantum computation, Seth Lloyd shows how the universe itself is a giant computer. Every atom and elementary particle stores these bits, and every collision between those atoms and particles flips the bits into a new arrangement and effortlessly spins out beautiful and complex systems, including galaxies, planets and life itself.

But every computer needs a program, the set of instructions that tell it what patterns to create. Where did the bits come from that tell the universe to create its magnificent complexity? Who - or what - is programming the universe?
