Charity to benefit from Book Royalties

Leeds Children’s Charity is delighted to announce that it has been chosen to receive royalties from next year’s research book, published by Cambridge University Press, focussed on topological quantum computation – a subject which combines physics, mathematics and computer science.

The author, Jiannis K. Pachos  is a Reader in the School of Physics and Astronomy  at the University of Leeds. He works on a variety of research  topics, ranging from quantum field theory to quantum optics. Dr  Pachos is also a University Research Fellow of the Royal Society.

The book is currently available for pre-order on both Amazon and Cambridge University Press before its release date in Spring 2012.

We are delighted to have been selected and would like to thank Jiannis K. Pachos for choosing such a worthwhile cause.  We wish him every success with his new publication.
