This book is based on an in-depth conversation between Howard Burton and Artur Ekert, Professor of Quantum Physics at the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford and Director of the Centre for Quantum Technologies and Lee Kong Chian Centennial Professor at the National University of Singapore. Artur Ekert is best known as one of the pioneers of quantum cryptography. This wide-ranging conversation provides detailed insights into his research and covers many fascinating topics such as mathematical and physical intuition, a detailed history of cryptography from antiquity to the present day and how it works in practice, the development of quantum information science, the nature of reality, and more.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, Putting the Pieces Together, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:

I. Beginnings - Mathematics, physics and intuition

II. Cryptographic Essentials - From the ancient Greeks to the Cold War

III. Public Key Cryptosystems - Harnessing the difficulty factor

IV. Harnessing Interference - The power of quantum computers

V. Quantum Sociology - What is quantum information science, anyway?

VI. Quantum Metaphysics - And its concrete effects

VII. The Joy of Questioning - And the merits of being rebellious
