This book is a self-contained introduction to quantum information, quantum computation, quantum error-correction. The book starts with basic principles of quantum mechanics including state vectors, operators, density operators, measurements, and dynamics of a quantum system. It continues with fundamental principles of quantum computation, basic quantum gates, basic quantum algorithms, and fundamentals of quantum information processing. A significant space in the book will be spent on quantum error correction codes (QECCs), in particular on stabilizer codes, Calderbank-Shor-Steane (CSS) codes, quantum low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes, entanglement-assisted QECCs, topological codes, and surface codes. The book continues with quantum information theory,  and quantum key distribution (QKD). The book continues with fault-tolerant information processing and fault-tolerant quantum error correction, together with a chapter on quantum machine learning. The next part of the book is spent investigating physical realizations of quantum computers, encoders and decoders; including photonic quantum realization, cavity quantum electrodynamics, and ion traps.
