Mini-Library on Quantum Information and Computation

This page is meant to be a collection of representative and available references for the study and research of the theoretical aspect of quantum information and computation. It is by no means complete, however, is meant to be as comprehensive as possible and will be regularly maintained. Send me an email if you have any good suggestion.
